Why it's a hot topic

In Jan 2021 the UK’s Competition and Markets Authority opened an investigation into Google’s proposals to remove third party cookies and other functionalities from its Chrome browser, initiated by the Marketers for an Open Web (MOW), an alliance of marketers and publishers.

On 3 March 2021 Google made a new announcement: “once third-party cookies are phased out, we will not build alternate identifiers to track individuals as they browse across the web, nor will we use them in our products.”

The problem

“Privacy Sandbox would effectively create a Google-owned walled garden that would close down the competitive, vibrant Open Web.  Providing more directly identifiable, personal information to Google does not protect anyone’s privacy.” – James Rosewell said. 

The new Google announcement raises further questions for market players.

According to WARC: "It’s not exactly news that the third-party cookie is being phased out, yet only a third of marketers and agencies recently surveyed for WARC’s Marketer’s Toolkit feel they are ready for what’s next.”
