Where are new and/or unapproved cookies and technologies showing up on my website?
Changes to your website can happen over time without you ever noticing; tags and cookies can get to your website from 3rd parties and can be a security issue. Once you have set up Consent Categories and have established an approved list of cookies and tags, you can see any new/unapproved cookies and tags as the Audit performs its scheduled run.
You can see unapproved cookies and tags in the Audit Summary report. You can click on any report widget to drill into the report.
In this example, you can see 8 unapproved cookies and four unapproved tags.
After clicking on the 8 unapproved cookies, you can see the cookie name and cookie domain and the number of pages that they are applied to. Occasionally there will be cookies or tags that you can add to your approved list by clicking the icon under the Consent Category section. This will quickly add it to a Consent Category for you without having to leave the report.
You can export a list of unapproved cookies and tags to share with applicable people to take action.
