Streak says I have 3rd party cookies disabled, now what?

By allowing Streak access to your cookies, you are granting Streak the ability to 'remember' that you have already logged into your account. This way, Streak will not have to ask for permission each time you log into Gmail. 

If you use any browser extensions that block cookies from being set, such as ad blockers, Privacy Badger, and/or Ghostery then you will likely not be able to load Streak. Also, if your browser doesn't allow cookies to be set or clears out your cookies after closing your browsing session, then you will have to re-auth the Streak extension every time you load Gmail.

Please see below for steps on granting Streak access to your cookies:

Enable third-party cookies

In Safari (as of Safari 11.0.2, macOS High Sierra 10.13.2):

  1. Click Safari on the upper left-hand side of your screen
  2. In the menu that appears, click Preferences
  3. In the window that appears, click the Privacy tab
  4. For both 'Website Tracking' and 'Cookies and Website Data' please make sure none of the boxes are checked: 
  5. Refresh your Gmail and you should be good to go!

In Chrome (as of Chrome 63):

  1. Navigate to chrome://settings 
  2. At the bottom of the browser click Show advanced settings
  3. Click on the Content Settings button of the Privacy section 
  4. Under the Cookies section, select "Allow sites to save and read cookie data". Then uncheck "Keep local data only until you quit your browser" and "Block third-party cookies and site data."
  5. Refresh your Gmail and you should be good to go!

Pro-Tip: Setup a separate Chrome Profile for Streak

Google Chrome has the ability to create separate profiles, allowing you to login to the same email account in multiple profiles at the same time, while having different browser settings and extensions in each. You can create one profile for Streak and have another profile for other tools and/or general internet browsing.

To give Streak a special exception in Chrome:

  1. Navigate to chrome://settings 
  2. At the bottom of the browser click Show advanced settings 
  3. Click on the Content Settings button of the Privacy section 
  4. Under the Cookies section, click the Manage Exceptions button 
  5. In the pop-up, list "mailfoogae.appspot.com" in the Hostname pattern and ensure the Behavior is set to 'Allow'
  6. Refresh your Gmail and you should be good to go!
