The "Security Zones: Use Only Machine" Group Policy Setting Does Not Apply to Privacy (Cookie) Settings


When an administrator uses the Security Zones: Use only machine Group Policy setting to force all users of the same computer to have the same Internet Explorer security zones settings, privacy (cookie) settings are not affected. That is, different privacy settings can still be set by each user.


In Microsoft Internet Explorer and in Windows Internet Explorer, privacy (cookie) settings are not part of security zones.
