If a user does not accept cookies, how can I remove the __cf_bm cookie?

The built-in DDoS protection is cool, but if the user wishes not to accept any cookies (by clicking Reject All on a cookie banner say) how do I remove the __cf_bm cookie and make sure it doesn’t get re-set?


Ah, online resources are contradictory on this, but the UK ICO resource does say here that this type of cookie probably doesn’t need consent:

Is that how everyone else is treating it?


The 2 cookies you refer to indeed are as a result of us fronting all Render services with Cloudflare - this is something that cannot be disabled.


The ICOs own cookie control selection has ‘Necessary Cookies’
