Are Cookies ok in embedded apps

I've seen the email about third party cookies and safari blocking cross tracking. But it seems by reading the webkit blog it says that session cookies are ok and persistent cookies with a less than 7 day expiration time are ok too.

Am I understanding correctly?

Or do you have to completely get rid of persistent cookies and use the local storage?

Session and persistent cookies should be fine as long as you're conforming to ITP, as you've read in the webkit blog. What email are you referring to, and what does it say?

The subject says:

Update your app to be compatible with ITP 2.1

And the email starts with

Apple has announced Intelligent Tracking Prevention (ITP) 2.1 with Safari version 12.1+. This means that your embedded app may no longer work for merchants attempting to access it using this new version of Safari.

Hey there Omar,

 

Nope, you're right. Persistent cookies are fine, they just have a 7-day expiry as mentioned in the blog.
