iPhone, latest IOS, Safari.
I do very little web browsing from my phone; in most cases, I just open Safari and search for something. I always had this rather frustrating issue: every time I search for something, Google (which is my default search engine) asks me to accept cookies before displaying search results.
Digging more deeply, I discovered that the problem seems to be related to cookies: Safari just doesn’t seem to save any cookie at all; if f.e. I log in to a web site, the next time I go there I will be asked to log in again; anything I do on a web site (including clicking "Accept" on Google's disclaimer) is lost the next time I open it.
The option to block all cookies is not enabled.
I'm not using private mode.
I'm not clearing browser data between sessions.
Why is this happening, and how can I avoid it?
I definitely logged in to this very site from my phone to ask this question.
And yet, from the same phone, 20 minutes later, I had to log in again.
