I have seen some posts lately demonstrating that some of you are not aware of FLASH cookies. Yes, it is almost intuitive to clear your cookies but that isn't enough. I'll briefly explain what flash cookies are and how I avoid them. I don't claim for this to be comprehensive in regards to managing flash cookies but it has worked well for me. Anyone with an improvement on this method is invited to add it to this thread. WHAT ARE FLASH COOKIES? A large amount of websites you surf everyday use Adobe Flash to track users on their site and store information about them. However, unlike traditional cookies, flash cookies are not deleted when you do the typical "clear cookies" routine on your web browser. These flash cookies are also sometimes known as "super cookies" around the web. HOW TO REMOVE FLASH COOKIES For those of you who use Fire Fox, I highly recommend installing one of two add-ons: Better Privacy or Click & Clean I like Better Privacy the best. It has a setting to delete flash cookies at a regular interval as you surf around the Internet. Mine kicks in and wipes the cookies out every 3 minutes. Another option is to open up your Flash player on your computer. Go to the "Global Storage Settings Panel" in the list on the left and find the option that says "Allow third-party Flash content to store data on your computer" and unselect it. This will prevent additional cookies from being added to your computer in the future. To remove flash cookies already on your computer go to the "Website Storage Settings Panel" and delete them one-by-one (kind of a pain if you are doing this for the first time - I had over 800 when I first discovered these suckers). If you have a ton I recommend doing the Mozilla plug-ins instead and you can delete all of them in one shot.

Remember, I don't claim for this to be comprehensive, so please feel free to chip in. This is just what has worked for me so far and I wanted to give back to BHW for all that I've learned. Good luck!
