Step 3. Prior consent

To round off, when the website scan is complete, check your scan report. If there are any unclassified cookies, log in to your account and under “Cookies” make sure to classify them and add a short purpose description. This classification helps ensure that all cookies and trackers on your website (except for ‘strictly necessary’ cookies) will automatically be blocked until a user has given consent. Only those categories of cookies the user has consented to will be activated upon consent – all other cookies will be held back automatically.

You can disable the automatic cookie blocking feature and make a manual implementation of Cookiebot instead by following our manual implementation guide.

Step 4. Make adjustments to the cookie consent banner you want to display on your website

Go to “Settings” and “Dialog” and choose your cookie consent banner. The default banner is configured with the strictest settings possible (suitable for cookie consent under GDPR and ePR).

Under “Settings” and “Content”, edit the default banner text so it fits your website and legal requirements.
