Clear cookies for a specific site in Chrome

Getting rid of a cookie
My preferred method for eliminating cookies

I use Chrome for most of my browsing needs. Occasionally I have an issue with one particular site that requires a login --- when I enter my username and password and hit "login", it responds like nothing happened. I know from experience that clearing my cookies resolves the issue for this particular site, but I hate clearing ALL my cookies and having to log in fresh to all the sites I visit frequently.

This happened again today and got me to wondering how I could clear a single cookie or all the cookies for a particular site. Is it possible to do without too much pain and hoop jumping? It is!!

I found this helpful Chrome support page, "Clear, enable, and manage cookies in Chrome": https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/95647 and I performed these steps:

  1. On your computer, open Chrome.
  2. At the top right, click More More and then Settings.
  3. At the bottom, click Advanced.
  4. Under "Privacy and security," click Site settings.
  5. Click Cookies and then See all cookies and site data.
  6. At the top right, search for the website's name.
  7. To the right of the site, click Remove Remove.

The Chrome support page also has detailed instructions for clearing all cookies and deleting cookies for a period of time, and includes instructions for PC, Android, and iPhone & iPad.
