The cookie scanner uses an easy four-part process:
- You provide us with the URL of the domain you want scanned for cookies.
- A robot is sent to crawl every page of that domain — acting as a browser — and captures the details of all the cookies found. Keep in mind that the robot will obey the no-follow rules in your robots.txt file.
- Delayed cookies (such as those deployed via GTM) are then captured and recorded.
- The final results of the scan are compiled into a comprehensive cookie report and sent to you via email.
