Since we can not add or remove any cookies from the Necessary group, I am wondering which cookies are affected there? When I disable it, I don’t see any change other than the GDPR Cookie Compliance cookie.
Also, I am able to add my analytics tags to the 3rd party just fine and everything works but I still am seeing plenty of fontawsome, google and wordpress cookies showing up… i am guessing some other scripts are used in the template I am using. Do you have any strategy or tips to stop these from loading from functions.php and your hooks maybe? The script calls are too much embedded into template pieces and I do not want to edit core files.

Thank you for expressing your interest in our plugins.
You can’t add script under Strictly Necessary category, this is used by our plugin to store the user preferences and also you can use to handle the cookies which couldn’t be disabled like WordPress authentication, WooCommerce cookies, etc. You can keep the Strictly Necessary always enabled so the users can’t disable these cookies and by this, all the cookie out of your control will be categorised as Strictly Necessary. The FontAwesome is an icon font, and it’s probably loaded by one of your plugin or theme. Please speak to your developer to check this for you, alternatively, you can mark as Strictly Necessary. The Google Analytics tracking script should be moved to 3rd party cookies and the hardcoded version should be removed from your theme/plugins.
Hope this helps.AuthorPostsViewing 2 posts - 1 through 2 (of 2 total)
Which cookies does Necessary group effect?
Strictly Necessary Cookie should be enabled at all times so that we can save your preferences for cookie settings.
