As part of the CookieFirst consent management platform, the cookie scanner is capable of detecting first-party, second-party, and third-party cookies, trackers, and more. Use it to get an in-depth picture of your website’s use of these elements and make changes accordingly. We conduct a thorough analysis to find any and all cookies and local storage items present on your site, giving you a detailed report on which cookies are necessary, which can be disabled or removed, and which require cookie consent.
From there, it’s simply a matter of implementing the right banners and notices to align with data privacy laws (we help with that too). CookieFirst makes it easy to take control of your website’s technical elements, reducing its risks of legal trouble and enabling you to focus on what really matters.
