One of the reasons why the Safari browser remains the default browser for iPhone users is that it comes with several data protection features. It can prevent cross-site tracking, give fraudulent website warnings, and maintain the privacy of its users. One of the things it does to prevent user tracking is by blocking website cookies. However, that also causes many apps to misbehave, as they need cookies to store user information. One of the biggest issues you might face is while logging into third-party email apps. If you are also facing the same issue, here is how to fix Cookies are disabled error on iPhone.
