    Hi, I tried to remove all cookies from iPhone, but one is still there. Google!
    On the the iPad which is much older remains some 7-9 cookies.

    I did exately as mentioned in help (> Clear History and Website Data and > Remove All Website Data) twice!, but the Google cookie is still there...

    Something similar is going on also in macOS Sierra.
    After deleting the cookies some "databases" remains and cannot be deleted. Google also there..

    How to delete ALL cookies?

    It's a bug. I have that will not clear. 0 bytes of data but whatever I try it will not clear. I have sent feedback to Apple but the bug is still there. Apparently the bug is still present in iOS 11 beta 1.

    Hi Crookadile,
    thank you for reply. Yes on iPad I have also the eBay cookie and as you mentioned in iOS all are 0 bites.
    In macOS Sierra the non removable have the description "database". No idea what's the meaning of that.

    I just started a thread yesterday about a similar issue. I have database which refuses to be removed from the iMac running El Capitan. I google searched and it turns out to be the library of congress website but the strange thing is I have never accessed that website or anything similar and don't even live in USA so I have no idea why it is there.

    I would love an explanation or some insight into this.
