End Google Chrome Third-Party Cookies

Google Chrome third-party cookies were supposed to become obsolete on the Internet by now as the company wanted to drop support for its web browser by 2022 and replace it with new technology that it called Privacy Sandbox.

Now, Google announced that it has decided to delay the phasing out of support for third-party cookies to the second half of 2024.

Anthony Chavez, VP, Privacy Sandbox announced the decision on July 27 on the company blog.

Here is the updated schedule:

  • Today — Developers may test the Privacy Sandbox APIs.
  • Early August — Privacy Sandbox trials begin with millions of Chrome users.
  • Rest of 2022 and 2023 — trials are extended to increase the population.
  • Q3 2023 — Privacy Sandbox APIs will become available in stable versions of Chrome by default.
  • second half of 2024 — Phasing out of third-party cookies support in Chrome.
