Allowing Cookies to make Pear Deck Work

Overview

Pear Deck needs to set cookies in your browser in order to work correctly. We expect to set cookies from our website and a couple of third-party sites. Here is the full list:

  • peardeck.com
  • google.com
  • login.microsoftonline.com
  • youtube.com

Are you trying to use Pear Deck, but seeing an error message stating that you need to enable or allow cookies? We can help! See below for instructions to allow cookies in each of the browsers that are compatible with Pear Deck (Firefox, Microsoft Edge 18, Safari and Chrome). If Pear Deck still doesn't work after following these instructions, please contact help@peardeck.com.

Firefox

Cookies are enabled by default in Firefox, so you should be ready for Pear Deck! However, if cookies were blocked any point, here's how to enable them again:

  1. In the browser, click the menu (three lines) button.
  2. Select Content Blocking. The Privacy & Security panel of Firefox Preferences will open.
  3. Select Standard to restore the default settings and enable cookies to be set. Learn more about cookies in Firefox.

Microsoft Edge 18

  1. In Microsoft Edge, go to More (...) > Settings.
  2. Select View advanced settings.
  3. Under the Cookies section, click the drop-down menu and select Don't block cookies.
  4. Restart Edge.

Safari

  1. Open the Safari app on your Mac
  2. Click on Safari > Preferences
  3. Select Privacy
  4. Choose Allow from current website only, Allow from websites I visit, or Always allow. Learn more about cookies in Safari.

Chrome

If cookies are blocked, Chrome will show you an icon like this in the URL bar:

Cookies are blocked, chrome, url bar only
  1. To enable cookies, go to chrome://settings/content.
  2. Click on Cookies.
  3. Go to Allow sites to save and read cookie data. Move the slider to make it active (blue). Make sure that Block third-party cookies and site data is inactive (grey). That should take care of it!
