Prepare for third-party cookie restrictions
To facilitate testing, Chrome has restricted third-party cookies by default for 1% of users. During this testing period, it is important for sites and services to start preparing for third-party cookie restrictions, including moving to more private alternatives. Subject to addressing any remaining competition concerns of the UK's Competition and Markets Authority, Chrome will ramp up third-party cookie restrictions to 100% of users from Q3 2024.

In this post, we introduce Related Website Sets (RWS)—our new name for FPS that better reflects its purpose—and provide a refresher on key use cases along with an update on the associated subset domain limit.
We want to ensure we capture the various scenarios where sites break without third-party cookies to ensure that we have provided guidance, tooling, and functionality to allow sites to migrate away from their third-party cookie dependencies. If your site or a service you depend on is breaking with third-party cookies disabled, you can submit it to our breakage tracker.
