Clear Cookies & Session Storage On Content Refresh
Clear any cookies and HTML session storage set by a site at the end of a visitor session. This includes text copied to the clipboard. On the majority of sites, this will close any open sessions and clear any login data and/or e-commerce carts.
Data is cleared when:
- the Idle Time Limit is executed
- the Refresh Homepage timer is executed
- a visitor taps the Home icon in the Navigation Bar
- ‘kiosk://home’ is called
In addition, when Clear Data on Relaunch & Remote Update is turned on, cookies will be cleared regardless of this setting when:
- the app is exited and relaunched
- a remote update of settings and/or content occurs
In circumstances where the visitor taps a standard link that returns to the homepage or navigates back to the homepage using the Back icon in the navigation bar, the app will not immediately clear cookies, but instead will wait for one of the actions outlined above.
If cookies need to be retained on a specific domain, but cleared on others, you can exclude domains using the Retain Cookies On setting.
