ProcessWire without guest cookies, possible?


Recommended Posts

ProcessWire is setting a "wires" cookie for each guest session.

Is it possible drop that cookies, so there are no cookies at all for guests?

That way, I don't need to spam the user with a cookie consent box.
I don't need cookies for user preferences and marketing purposes.

(Why are cookies being set by default in the first place?)

As @LostKobrakai pointed out on the thread below:



Just so people don't prematurely jump to disabling useful security features: Having cookies enabled to allow for session storage or csrf protection can be justified as "legitimate interest" (Art. 6 GDPR), which means you no longer need explicit consent. You'll probably still need to document that justification in the privacy policy, though.



You can disable it though.
