Description (last modified by Mariusz Felisiak)

There's a new header described at that can be used to enforce the browser to remove various types of data that the user leaves behind. A usage example is to clear data on either an account deletion, or simply when signing out. Examples are the cache and the cookies. The document is still a working draft.

Some time ago, support for the cookie SameSite flag was implemented.

It appears that the major browser vendors have implemented support for it, to some extend.
