Cookies are text files saved in your temporary Internet folder, created to track your browsing history and information. On the one hand, this keeps you from having to keep entering your credentials to see a website. But on the other hand, tracking cookies are used by companies like Amazon to track your browsing behavior and then make “personalized” recommendations about what to buy from that company. Because this tracking information is not private, one way to prevent this from being known is to remove your Amazon tracking cookies.
How to get rid of Amazon Tracking Cookies
Go to the toolbar at the top of the Mozilla Firefox browser and click “Tools”. Then click “Options”.
Click the lock icon that says “Privacy.” Click “Show Cookies”. Scroll down until you see the Amazon.com and click “Delete Cookies”.
Go to the toolbar on the upper right of the Internet Explorer browser and click “Tools”. Then select “Internet Options”.
Click the tab that says “General” and click “Delete” next to the browsing history. This will remove all your cookies.
