General working mechanism
The Secure Privacy Scanner scans your website and identifies all cookies and plugins setting them. You can view a detailed report of your cookies and plugins inside the Scan Report.
Based on their consent and the categories consented, if any, Secure Privacy will enable those plugins and cookies. By default all the cookies except will be blocked for any website, however, the webmasters can control this behavior by turning on/off the Auto blocking switch.
Technical working mechanism
IE11. The observers registered with Secure Privacy checks the script loading pattern and blocks them until the consent is given.
Secure Privacy Auto-Blocking uses your scan results and cookie categorizations to know what to block. If a cookie has not been detected by the site scanner or is not categorized, it will not be controlled by the auto-blocking script.
To ensure a successful implementation of the auto-blocking script, rescan your site before beginning the implementation and ensure all cookies are categorized.
