Safari for macOS Sierra: Manage cookies and website data using Safari
Sep 6, 2017 Websites often store cookies and other data on your Mac. This data may include information that you have provided, such as your name, email address, and preferences.

Aug 24, 2017I have been unable to remove cookies since updating to Sierra, even after the latest 10.12.2 update. My method beforehand was to Allow Cookies only from websites I visit, then I would manually erase my history and then cookies (command ,) in the Privacy -->Manage Website Data.
