Google finally allows you to refuse all cookies in one click


Google finally allows you to refuse all cookies in one click

Google had its ears pulled and was forced to facilitate the refusal of all cookies on two of its flagship platforms.

Forced by the National Commission for informatics and freedoms (CNIL) and European regulators, Google finally offers a simpler way for users to refuse all cookies on Google Search and YouTube with a single click.

It becomes easier to refuse cookies on Google Search and YouTube

The new interface now includes two "Accept All" or "Deny All" buttons highlighted in the same way. In the previous version, Google made it more difficult to access the option to refuse all cookies at once.

A third button "More options" allows you to choose individually which cookies you decide to accept and which ones you prefer to refuse. It replaces the "Customize" which hid these same options but also the "Refuse All" button, which was therefore not directly accessible.


Google says that the rollout of this change began in France and that it will continue soon in the member countries of the European Economic Area, which includes the European Union as well as Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway. Switzerland and the United Kingdom are also concerned.

Under the impetus of the CNIL

Of course, Google does not make this change willingly, it has been forced to do so. At the beginning of the year, the CNIL imposed a fine of 150 million euros on Google for its practices relating to the cookie banner.

The company was rightly accused of displaying a button to immediately accept cookies, but without offering an equivalent solution to refuse them so easily. However, the rule provides that a cookie must be as simple to refuse as to accept. This will now be the case with the new interface.

Google says it has worked with the CNIL to develop this redesign. But the competent authorities in other countries including Germany, Ireland, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom had also tapped the fingers of the American group.
