It happens all the time with me when I log on with my tablet but only the once on my PC at work. I said no to everything on the work PC and it's been fine but it doesn't matter what options I agree or disagree to it keeps happening on the tablet.

Something for @Bad CO or @Good CO to have a look at maybe? I'm not on our sister site so I don't know if it's happening on ARRSE.


Just tried it on Arrse, and it only asked me the once, but still getting it every time on here :(

It asked me once on my laptop but hasn't come back since.

Took about 5 - 10 minutes to 'untick' everything because there was no 'de-select all' button.

My Gmail app just vanished.
I didn't uninstall it.
All stations check your settings.
Reinstalled Gmail just now but all other email addresses associated with the app have disappeared.
Have I just bolloxed myself by letting that notification in?
I have problems with this as well and I'm also concerned with the security aspect. Is this thing safe ?
Don't know about other people, but the only way I could get rid of the fcuking pop up was to accept the thing.
Has anyone got a solution to this problem ?

Good CO

Hi all, I'm sorry that you've had problems with this. It is unfortunately a fact of life. If we don't have this bullshit then the adverts will be removed by Google next month, and if we don't have the adverts then the site is unlikely to survive unless an alternative income source is available. My point here is please bear with it.

There have also been problems on ARRSE and two posts in particular have helped:

Regarding safety, yes it is safe. It's from Google and seems to be the only realistic means for small sites like us to comply with the cookie law requirements, while placing advertising. Setting this thing up from scratch without the Google one is a nightmare that I wasted a lot of time on, and ultimately failed.
