I was feeling hungry that day, but I never imagined that I could end up like I did. Knowing all the stuff that I know today, next time I will be more careful.
If you're here thinking: 'how can someone eat that much!! 🤯' I'm sorry to tell you that the title was just clickbait. (Although I do actually eat a lot of cookies )
In this post, I'm going to show how cookies on internet sites have gone wild.
I'm not new to cookies nor privacy issues on the internet, but a few days ago I was surprised when I accidentally saw how many cookies outlook was using when I opened my email.
I'm not saying that cookies count has a direct relation with privacy. But I'm surprised at how many each site ends up installing.
Some context before I post the screenshots:
- I live in Europe, so the GDPR banners are shown on almost every site and I accepted the default cookie options.
- I was logged in to some sites.
- It took me 5 minutes to enter all those sites, and cookies count adds up to 602
Here's the list, ordered from biggest to smallest (screenshots below list):

And here's a list of some of my favorites cookies, just in case some gets hungry:
