How Do I View Individual Cookies In Safari 5.1 And Later?


How do I view cookies in Safari 5.1? I can only see where they are from instead of seeing the actual cookie values.

Check out a previous Ask question to learn about clearing cookies.

You can view individual cookies in newer versions of Safari, but it isn't as easy as it had been. First go to Safari > Preferences > Advanced and check "Show Developer Menu in Menubar". Then load a site from the domain you are interested in viewing. Go to the Developer menu to "Show Web Inspector" (Command-Option-I). Choose the "Resources" tab and then expand "Cookies" in the sidebar. Select the site and view its cookies.
