Adjusting Cookie Settings for Login

Why are cookies required?

The technology that's used to log people in to the Clubhouse site requires cookies. Believe it or not, this actually makes it easier for most users (that is, all users who have cookies enabled) to use the site — once they log in for the first time, they rarely need to do it again. This is similar to the way New York Times, Amazon, and many other websites operate.

Make clubhouse an exception

If you dislike the idea of accepting cookies from ALL sites you visit, that's ok — you can make Clubhouse an exception to your cookie rules, allowing cookies for Clubhouse, but for no other sites. Below are some instructions for various browsers; if your preferred browser isn't on this list, you may need to tinker. Experiment with your browser's Preferences or Options. National staff can't offer cookie-allowing instructions for ALL browsers, just the big players. Good luck!
