How to Delete Yahoo Cookies

Save

Cookies are small pieces of data that websites send to your computer to store information about you and your preferences. When your computer saves cookies for websites like Yahoo, Google and Amazon, you don't have to type your username and password to access your online account each time you visit the site. However, too many cookies in your Web browser's history can slow down performance. If you don't want to remove all the cookies on your computer, you can selectively delete cookies from Yahoo or other specified sites in Firefox and Chrome. With Internet Explorer, you can only choose to delete all cookies, but you can set the browser never to save cookies from Yahoo.
