BetterPrivacy is the only Flash cookie blocker I know of. Other cookie blockers block the typical cookies like adware cookies. But BetterPrivacy is the only one that blocks flash cookies. Why does this matter? Well if your going to a site to watch a flash video, it actually has flash cookies that it stores on your computer. It can tell sites which videos you watch but it doesn't help you in any way. Saving the flash cookies won't save your video information so you can go back to it later. All flash cookies do is benefit the site and add file size to your computer. Worse yet are cleaning software don't delete them and you can't set your browser to delete them either. This is where BetterPrivacy comes in, it not only deletes the current flash cookies but also prevents other cookies from being put on your computer as well. It saves you space and protects your privacy at the same time.

The only downside to BetterPrivacy is if yoi don't have flash cookies on your computer yet. It can nag you to search for the folder their stored in, until it finds flash cookies. This can be a pain if you open and close your browser a lot and haven't been to any sites that have flash cookies.

Seeing as this is the only product that actually deletes and blocks flash cookies it is recommended for all. It's safe and won't effect your surfing habbits. Once it detects flash cookies just allow it to block all flash cookies and it won't ask you again.

Note: Only took a month or so after mentioning and suggesting this for Softonic to upload and to a review on it. Better late than never I guess.

Pros
  • Only Product To Block And Delete Flash Cookies
  • Simple And Easy To Use
  • Free
Cons
  • Shows Annoying Pop-Up Until It Finds Flash Cookies
