Scroll to 'Privacy and security' and click ' Site Settings.'

In Permissions, select ' Cookies and site data'.

Here you’ll find a menu where you can toggle on/off your default cookie settings. Make sure the button to ‘Allow sites to save and read cookie data’ is toggled to On.

With cookies now allowed, head back to SmarterQueue to see if functionality has been restored. 💪

Testing In Incognito Mode

Sometimes a browser extension can block SmarterQueue from creating cookies. You can quickly test if this is the case by opening an incognito window in your browser and then using SmarterQueue. To open an incognito window, go to File>New Incognito Window. This lets you use your browser without extensions.

In incognito mode, again try using SmarterQueue to see if the functionality is restored. If you find that the problem goes away, then it’s most likely being caused by a browser extension that’s not letting SmarterQueue create cookies. 

Once you identify the particular extension causing this, simply blocking or deleting that extension should prevent it from occurring in the future.
