iOS users can start to forget about annoying cookie popups, as Opera Touch – a great mobile browser alternative to Safari – has introduced a new cookie dialog blocking feature.
Apart from the incessant nagging to opt-in to newsletter lists, one of the results of GDPR coming into force last year was the sudden influx of cookie dialog popups that followed. There are few more annoying things than having to accept cookies when browsing, so the Opera Touch browser – launched last year – has a new option for iOS users to skip popups and just accept those damn cookies!
“We wanted our users to be able to focus on the content they are interested in, not on tapping through numerous prompts before they can even access a website. Now they have the option to switch cookie dialogs off,” said Maciej Kocemba, Product Manager Opera Touch.
If you use Opera Touch, to activate the new feature, all you have to do is go to the settings and turn the “Cookie dialog blocker” tool on. The feature is already available in Opera Touch for Android since November of 2018, and it has grown so much in popularity that Opera decided to roll it out to iOS users as well.
