Want to temporarily enable cookies in Chrome? We’ve got some good news for you.

As spotted by Chrome insider @Leopeva64, Google seems to be working closely to bring a toggle that lets you temporarily enable cookies. While enabling cookies can be annoying for some reasons, whether it’s the intrusive cookie banners, tracking, or security risks, it can make you load the site faster if it isn’t working properly. 

The feature is located on the right side of the address bar, indicated by an eye icon. By clicking on it, a dialog labeled “third party cookies blocked” will appear, allowing users to easily toggle the feature on or off.

Being an insider-only feature for now, the new toggle is currently in development, and it is not yet clear when it will be released to the public. However, it is a welcome addition to Chrome, and it will be a valuable tool for users who want to control their cookie settings.

In addition to the new toggle, Chrome is also working on other improvements to its cookie-blocking features. For example, Chrome is working on a way to block third-party cookies from tracking users across websites by 2024.
