You can go to the Developer Tools (Ctrl-Shift-J or Tools -> Developer Tools) -> Console and the you can enter javascript command:


You can replace or add new cookies with this technique.

It is possible to set multiple cookie options, i.e.

document.cookie="username=John Doe; expires=Thu, 18 Dec 2013 12:00:00 UTC; path=/";

Stanley basically said it but to clarify - if you only edit a single cookie with this command, it will not delete all the other cookies on the site, it really only replaces the cookies mentioned in the command. –  Jon z Sep 11 '13 at 22:21
This won't work if some website is using HttpOnly flag to prevent access to cookies by JS (to deny XSS attacks). More on wiki. –  s3m3n May 6 '14 at 17:37
Hi, can you also set the expiry date using this method? –  Drewdavid Oct 8 '14 at 4:22
Hi David, I just edited my answer to show how to add expiry and path. –  StanleyD Oct 13 '14 at 11:49

Using 10.0.648.45 dev you can view cookies in Options -> Under the Hood -> Content Settings -> All Cookies and site data.

Alternatively, you can view the cookies for the current site with the Developer Tools (Ctrl-Shift-J or Tools -> Developer Tools), Resources -> Cookies.

But you cannot edit the values in either pane, can you? –  phihag Dec 16 '12 at 8:45
That's correct, you can only view them in Chrome without addons. –  Dan H Dec 27 '12 at 0:36

I have been frustrated by the current solutions on the extensions store to view, edit, create, remove cookies. The current solutions appeared as popups and did not have a good UI. I wanted to get the same functionality as the firebug cookies editor with a Chrome look and feel. So I made one:

Cookie Inspector - Missing cookie manager for Google Chrome. Edit and create cookies right in the Developer Tools.

Finally a decent replacement for Firecookie. Thank you man! –  georg Oct 7 '13 at 10:13

Perhaps the easiest way to view your cookies in Chrome is to visit:

  • chrome://settings/cookies

(StackExchange Y U No hyperlink?)

This does not allow you to edit the cookies in Google Chrome 33.0.1750.117 (Official Build 252094) on Mac OS X, but does allow viewing and deleting.

There is a Chrome plug-in called Edit This Cookie. It adds a menu to your browser toolbar which allows you to add, edit, and delete cookies.

Install it from here: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/edit-this-cookie/fngmhnnpilhplaeedifhccceomclgfbg

The source code is here: https://github.com/fcapano/Edit-This-Cookie

I would recommend use external cookies managers. Personally, I like ChromeCookiesView and CookieSpy.

To edit cookies, I recommend the Chrome plugin: EditThisCookie (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/editthiscookie/fngmhnnpilhplaeedifhccceomclgfbg) that was already mentioned.

For completeness is should be noted that you don't need the developer tools console or any add-ons, extensions or plug-ins.

The javascript commands provided by @StanleyD can be directly entered into the address bar with just an additional "javascript:" prepended. E.g.


This is useful in an environment where you need to send a cookie change out to a bunch of non-tech users without overwhelming them with steps.
