GDPR requires that all websites that provide services to European users must provide a complete report on the use of cookies to record user information and continue to use it with the express consent of the user.

There are several commercial Cookie Scanner online.

But we decide to make our implementation Open Source. Hope to help more people getting aware of the privacy problems.


1. Nice HTML or PDF report

2. Detailed cookie description (more than 10k cookie description in Open Database).


Cookie description data is crawled from https://cookiepedia.co.uk/

And I put it into CQL Database for easier usage.

Good skills

I tried facebook.com, the result is really interesting. Before login, there is NO cookie set in my browser.

I'm really confused, some websites set Cookie before I click the "Accept", other set Cookie after I click the "Accept".

Some sites provide me a very very detailed cookie usage checkbox, others not.

So, what is RIGHT of GDPR compliance ????

To be honest, I think most developers or App owner are not clear of that.

Maybe, we can just follow facebook.com: "Use with Consent"
