Crawler updates

We’ve made several updates to the crawler. The crawler is now much faster and more precise in the results. More cookies are now automatically classified and assigned to the right provider. We also added some new settings for the crawler (e.g. crawling password ranges and excluding domains/paths from crawling).

Cookies & local storage

Local storage is a way of storing information on a device. It is very similar to cookies, but with less impact on privacy and technical limitations. Consentmanager now supports using this technology as a secondary store for users’ consent information. This helps cache user choices more securely – even in cases where browsers don’t support cookies or delete them. The new feature can be enabled under Menu > CMPs > Edit > Other Settings > Consent Storage.
