    Neopets Cookies Consent



    Have you guys been getting this? I have just started seeing it for the first time since yesterday.

    I'm curious if you use something that blocks cookies if it automatically bypasses that block because you automatically consent. I don't fully understand what this could mean because I'm not super knowledgeable in this area. but what kind of problems could this impose if using a proxy service to access other accounts?

    I haven't seen this message at all but maybe it's something everyone is getting? I've seen similar messages on other websites before

    I see. I guess it probably doesnt affect me too much since I use a privacy browser. the way it's just displayed on the pages kinda creeps me out like WE STILL GOT EM.

    I've been getting the message on Neo for over a year.
    Happens every so often after I clear my cache, or when I get on my VPN. Once it comes up for a session it's gone though.

    I'm pretty sure it's just a norm that websites have started implementing though. I've gotten in on Twitter, Neo, Google. It's all over.
    Nothin' to worry about.

    That's been a thing for a few years now. If you use an add-on/extension to prevent cookies being stored, it shouldn't be affected by that.
    I've only seen that message while on a VPN/Proxy though, never with my home connection.

    True it's nothing to worry about. I also get this when I use VPN and login to neopets.

    I got this the other day, but it only seems to happen when I use VPNs. Sounds p common

    Thanks everyone! I have used a private browser for some time and I had never seen it until now. I just wanted to make sure maybe my settings weren't messed up or something and I didn't realize it. ^-^

    No big deal! Better to be safe than sorry though. :>
