Using a Phone or iPad

If you are using iOS 13.6 on a mobile device (phone or iPad) you will need to disable Prevent cross-site tracking which is found in the Safari Settings.

You can also get this message in Chrome if it has been specifically set to block third-party cookies previously. Follow the below steps for Chrome:

  • Go to Settings in the 3 dot menu.
  • Go down to the bottom and expand the Advanced section
  • Select Content Settings
  • Select Cookies
  • Toggle off Block third-party cookies.

If you are using iOS 12 that setting is not available in Chrome so you will need to disable “Prevent cross-site tracking” in the Safari settings and use Safari to access the Media tools.
