A robust website scanning tool is the easiest way to detect hidden cookies and tracking technologies on your website or mobile application. Applicable privacy laws like GDPR, ePrivacy Directive, and many other regulations, require websites to inform users about the types of cookies in use and obtain consent before placing any trackers.

In order to inform users of cookies, the first thing you need to do is identify not just the cookies your website is using, but also any cookies third-party services place on your website and set on your users’ browsers. Scan your website using CookiePro’s Website Scanner and check off the first step in organizing and owning website content to ensure compliance.
