Clear browser Cookies with Selenium WebDriver Java bindings.

Software TestingAutomation TestingSelenium Web DriverJava

We can clear browser cookies in Selenium. The method deleteCookieNamed shall delete a cookie with a specific name. The cookie named is passed as an argument to the method. First, we will add a cookie, then get it and finally delete it.

Syntax

driver.manage().deleteCookieNamed("foo");

Another method called the deleteAllCookies deletes all cookies from the existing domain. First, we will add the cookies, then get and delete them.

Syntax

driver.manage().deleteAllCookies();

Example

import java.util.Set;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebElement;
import org.openqa.selenium.chrome.ChromeDriver;
import java.util.concurrent.TimeUnit;
public class DeleteCookiesViaName{
   public static void main(String[] args) {
      System.setProperty("webdriver.chrome.driver",
      "C:\\Users\\ghs6kor\\Desktop\\Java\\chromedriver.exe");
      WebDriver driver = new ChromeDriver();
      driver.get("https://www.tutorialspoint.com/index.htm");
      // wait of 4 seconds
      driver.manage().timeouts().implicitlyWait(4, TimeUnit.SECONDS);
      // setting name and value for cookie
      Cookie c = new Cookie("test", "selenium");
      Cookie r = new Cookie("subject", "Java");
      // cookie addition
      driver.manage().addCookie(c);
      driver.manage().addCookie(r);
      // obtain the cookies
      Set<Cookie> ck = driver.manage().getCookies();
      //iterate through the cookies
      for (Cookie cookie : ck) {
         System.out.println("Cookie Name : "+cookie.getName());
         System.out.println("Cookie Value : "+cookie.getValue());
         // delete cookies by name
         driver.manage().deleteCookieNamed(cookie.getName());
      }
      // obtain the cookies after delete
      Set ch = driver.manage().getCookies();
      System.out.println("Cookie count after delete: "+ch.size());
   }
}

Example

Code Implementation with deleteAllCookies.

import java.util.Set;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebElement;
import org.openqa.selenium.chrome.ChromeDriver;
import java.util.concurrent.TimeUnit;
public class DeleteCookiesAll{
   public static void main(String[] args) {
      System.setProperty("webdriver.chrome.driver",
      "C:\\Users\\ghs6kor\\Desktop\\Java\\chromedriver.exe");
      WebDriver driver = new ChromeDriver();
      driver.get("https://www.tutorialspoint.com/index.htm");
      // wait of 4 seconds
      driver.manage().timeouts().implicitlyWait(4, TimeUnit.SECONDS);
      // setting name and value for cookie
      Cookie c = new Cookie("test", "selenium");
      Cookie r = new Cookie("subject", "Java");
      // cookie addition
      driver.manage().addCookie(c);
      driver.manage().addCookie(r);
      // obtain the cookies
      Set<Cookie> ck = driver.manage().getCookies();
      //iterate through the cookies
      for (Cookie cookie : ck) {
         System.out.println("Cookie Name : "+cookie.getName());
         System.out.println("Cookie Value : "+cookie.getValue());
      }
      // delete cookies
      driver.manage().deleteAllCookies();
      // obtain the cookies after delete
      Set ch = driver.manage().getCookies();
      System.out.println("Cookie count after delete: "+ch.size());
   }
}
