What happens if third party cookies are disabled on my browser?

Updated: 17 July 2017

If third-party cookies are disabled on your browser, some features on the BBC may not work quite as you'd expect.

This is because, like anything you sign in to, your BBC account relies on cookies to provide some bbc.co.uk and bbc.com services like personalisation.

If your browser is blocking third-party cookies, some of these features can't work properly so you may experience problems with your BBC account.

We're working on a way of solving this problem. In the meantime, if you’ve chosen to block third-party cookies on your browser and want to avoid problems using your BBC account, be sure to set exceptions for bbc.co.uk and bbc.com and account.bbc.com.

This won't affect your privacy settings on other websites and services you use.
