    This may be a bug in iOS 10 but whenever I go to Setting, Safari, Advanced, and then Clear Website Data, and delete all, it will not remove the entries. I rebooted the phone and still does not remove them. I also did the Clear History and Website Data, but under the Advanced option and then Website Data, when I hot remove All, they will not delete. The strange part of this, is that every entry contains 0 Bytes.

    Now, recently, I did a factory reset of the phone and that's the only way that they disappeared...

    The one that usually show up the most are from my bank after I logon to my bank's webpage.

    The cookie options are left as default in the Safari settings.

    Can anyone verify if this is happening to the rest of you here for those who are on 10.3.2?
    Before I previous versions, I was able to delete the stored website data entries.

    Thanks

    As I recall, it's been/being discussed in various existing 10.3.3 beta, 10.3.2, and even some earlier 10.3 threads. Seems like an existing bug/glitch of some sort.

    For the record, issue is still present in iOS 11 B1. Weather.com will not go away for me, even though its 0 bytes.

    And here we thought Apple cared about our privacy. It has been a problem to long to be not by design.

    And this affects privacy how? It's clearly a bug as it's been fixed in iOS 11. Doesn't happen on my Air 2.

    What? Let's see unable to delete tracking cookies I guess privacy means something different to you. In one post you say not fixed in IOS 11 very next one you say it is, I'm confused.

    I'm fairly certain this has nothing to do with cookies because it's 0 bytes of information.

    As to my contradiction. I was able to manually clear the one from weather.com by sliding and deleting. The delete all button wasn't working. But unlike iOS 10.3.x, it manually cleared. I just never updated my post.

    But doesn't it come right back if you go back in and look? I can delete as you mentioned but they all come right back if you immediately go look again. The never really go away apparently.

    Mine actually went away after I manually cleared it twice. I believe people have had some luck on iOS 10 by manually clearing it a dozen times to get it to disappear. I have not had any luck on iOS 10. Only 11.

    No, it’s not fixed in iOS 11, still happens on my 6s...

    No, it still exists on iOS 11 with my 6s... its privacy because leaving cookies when user doesn’t want them leaves traces of visited websites for any other website to discern.

    Its 100% fixed on my Air 2 and 8 Plus running iOS 11.0. It doesn't even leave the website name and 0bytes. The list is completely cleared.
