I'm having trouble logging in to a website in Safari, so I wanted to delete cookies for that one site. I went to Safari > Preferences > Privacy > Manage Website Data And searches for the site's name, but I see that the site is using cookies and local storage. I don't want to delete the local storage, just the cookies.

Screenshot of Safari Privacy preferences showing site in question

This is on Mac OS X 10.15.7 with Safari version 14.0 (15610., 15610)

In Safari, How can I delete just the cookies for a single site and leave the local data?

  • Is Safari Required? Firefox and (gack!) Chrome have add-ons that allow you to manipulate individual Cookies the way you're describing.

  • For this question, yes, because I already know how to do it in Chrome 😉

  • Got it...I was just looking for a way to solve the immediate problem...I'm not a frequent Safari user. Most of the time it's for downloading other browsers and for testing a website for functionality.

  • Thanks @Allan! Yeah for now I just cleared all the data, including local storage, but that caused me to lose some preferences so I was looking for a better fix specifically for Safari. But the immediate issue is "solved", for various definitions of solved.

Visit the website, open the developer tools (option-cmd-i, enabled in Preferences → Advanced), choose the Storage tab, then Cookies in the sidebar, and for each cookie, select it in the list and press backspace.
