Can we ask Ad Blockers for permission to use Cookies?

I have uBlock installed on my Chrome browser.

 

I see that it's blocking Google Analytics.  

 

A lot of websites are asking for permission to use cookies, so I thought maybe there was a standard way to ask and get the blocker to allow analytics tracking.

Hi @MrAnalogy,

 

The purpose of the tool is to block the actions of tracking such as Google Analytics and it creates issues for those that manage & use Google products, like AdWords, Analytics, etc.. The best course of action is to remove it or disable it while using the management dashboards of these products. 

 

Kind Regards,

 

James
