In this article, we offer two methods of identifying the cookies on your site:
1. Using the BuiltWith extension
To make excellent cookies, the second most important thing is the ingredients. The first is talent. You already have the talent, so we'll handle the rest!
Also, to make it easier for you to identify the cookies on your site, we at Axeptio recommend the BuiltWith extension in Chrome.
It's simple. The extension scans your site and lists all of the services being used. Nothing escapes it!
Just go to the Tech tab and browse the full list. All you need to do is add the cookies in the Axeptio back office.
2. Using the Chrome console
Want to integrate our widget on your site?! We love it! Alright, but a little bird told me that you might not know which services place cookies. No worries. We've put together a little tutorial to show you how to display a website's cookies through the Chrome console.
But before that, we have a quick reminder. Hey, you two in the back, listen up!
There are two types of cookies that may be used on a website:
- Proprietary cookies: These are cookies generated by the site in question.
- Third-party cookies: These cookies are generated by services that your site uses.
Below are two methods you can use to view a site's cookies:
- Display a site's cookies: Simple method using Chrome
- Display a site's cookies: Chrome's development tools
Display a site's cookies: Simple method using Chrome
- Open Google Chrome
- Go to the best CMP site in the world, which just so happens to be axeptio.eu
- Click the 🔓 icon and then Cookies :
- Now, go to the Allowed tab to see all of the cookies used by your site.
✅ To access the cookies used by your website, just click the domain name. Here it is for axeptio.eu
It is also possible to view the cookies from other domain names. These are the third-party services used by the site.
Display a site's cookies: Chrome's development tools
- Open Chrome's debugger console (F12 for Windows, ⌥ ⌘ i for Mac)
- Go to the Application menu > Storage > Cookies
Both of these methods are very simple, but the mapping can be complicated because the names of the cookies are not always clear.
✅ For example, the cookies _ga, _gid, and _gagb refer to the Google Analytics cookies.
