    Hi,

    as a feature request,

    would it be possible to implement a single cookie on/off functionality,

    instead of the current Category Cookies on/off with Opt-Out link for each cookie?

    I think it is always easier for the users (many are not very tech savy), just to click an On/Off buttons individually then to follow Opt-Out instructions.

    Looking forward to reading your feedback.

    Hi,
    If you search a little, you will find that it is already possible to do it.
    Just create a category of cookies used with your cookie name in cookie list and assign it a status on or off, depending on the button you want.
    You do not have to add third domain, it’s optional.

    Hi @bonaldi,

    so you mean to put Google Analytics and Hotjar as Category (with their respective cookies), instead of stacking them up together under Analytics, for example. Yes, it is a way.

    Still, I see as a more elegant solution to group the cookies and then have an On/Off switch. I guess this will be useful for websites with lots of cookies though.

    For simple websites, the way you suggest is great. Thanks for the tip!

    I am interested what the developer would say.

    Categories should be something like “Necessary”, “Analytics”, “Advertising”

    Under each category you would list(comma separated) all the cookies used by the site. All of those cookies will work under the same on/off toggle.

    The third party sections is more so for cookies that are set by a different domain and that you can’t block using the provided functions.

    Example: Youtube cookies that track where you paused the video and so on. You can’t block those without blocking the video entirely. So you would put those in the third party with a link to google’s instructions on how to opt out of those.

    Thanks for the clarification!
    After your example, I see that it is very well designed like it is.
