Windows 10: CCleaner removal of cookies and privacy

    CCleaner removal of cookies and privacy


    Amazon knows me: hello Piko.....
    Although I use a vpn, I am registered by my cookies (I presume).
    Using CCleaner you are able to clean/remove your cookies.
    This works for Firefox. Amazon doesnot recognize me anymore.
    However, it does not work for Internet Explorer (my alternative browser). Amazon still recognizes me.
    Failure of CCleaner, of something else?
    (Of course I know that inprivate browsing might be an option, when I don't want to be recognized)

    If you need to protect (save) individual cookies, you can in Ccleaner. (Options, Cookies).

    Check you have not disabled IE cookie cleaning.

    Note: some sites retain the fact you've signed out via cookies- really these should not be ones on which you do financial transactions. It sounds as though Amazon keeps that record on its server, so it may not be cookie dependent.

    See:
    Amazon.co.uk Help: About Signing In and Signing Out
    e.g.
    Keep Me Signed in Checkbox

    When you sign in on Amazon.co.uk, you may see an option to "Keep me signed in". If you choose this option, Amazon will keep you signed in for common activities such as making purchases and viewing your orders. This option will only apply to the computer and the browser that you're using when you select the box.

    - did you use that option in IE?

    Doesn't IE allow you to delete cookies?

    You have to tick (and untick with regard to favourites) your desired cleaning options in IE.
