SameSite Cookie Labeling
SameSite Cookie Labeling is Google’s tool to remove third party cookies altogether. This rollout was to assist the third party websites to maintain cookies so as to keep the web functionality normal. Say if a person is logged in at an online payment site that person can be taken as logged in someone else website and there is no need to sign in so as to make a payment.
Google is working on ways to stop any disturbance in web browsing.
