Usage without Cookie
Due to new Cookie policies in our country I do not want any cookies to be set for normal users.
Is there an option disabling this or which function needs that cookie?
Hi Robert, are you seeing a cookie being set for non-logged-in users?
Yes, there is (only)

There are only very specific scenarios where that cookie is set.
It’s never set for normal visitors, unless they visit non-normal pages, such as the login page.
Can you test again by ensuring your cookies are definitely cleared and loading only, for example, the home page.
Also, please ensure you’re on the latest version of Shield.
Thank You for Your fast answer. Again. Great support.
Fresh browser, no log in, just homepage: cookie.
Latest WP, latest plugin version.

It’s an odd one I can’t fully explain. We’re going to release 8.3 next week and we’ve just added in a bit of a cleanup around the sessions to make it clearer when that cookie gets set.
All that said though, these cookies don’t represent any sort of tracking, or identification mechansim. There is nothing in any part of the the plugin linking a visitor’s cookie to anything or information, except of course for logged-in users.
Thank You very much, no problem.
The coming law in Germany does not distinguish between tracking or something else: cookie only after permission. Maybe technically necessary cookies are allowed without permission.
Hopefully 8.3 will resolve this for you.
