Turning off Google Chrome SameSite Cookie Enforcement

Kristine Morical avatar


Google Chrome 80 introduced SameSite cookie enforcement in February 2020 with the goal of improving privacy and security across the web. They are now temporarily rolling back the enforcement due to issues on some websites providing essential services. The SameSite cookie enforcement can cause login issues with the Siteimprove CMS plugin integration.

If you are having login issues due to SameSite cookie enforcement, you can disable the enforcement as follows:

  1. Enter the following into your browser location bar and select “Disabled” in the drop-down. 
    chrome://flags/#same-site-by-default-cookies

    Same site by default cookies settings page in chrome browser
  2. Select the “Relaunch” button.

    Relaunch button highlighted

     

  3. Enter the following into your browser location bar and select “Disabled” in the drop-down.
    chrome://flags/#cookies-without-same-site-must-be-secure

    Cookies without same site must be secure setting page in chrome
  4. Select the “Relaunch” button.

    Relaunch button highlighted

Your changes will take effect after the relaunch of Google Chrome.
