Cookies whitelist on Chrome

Hi.
I want clear all my cookies with some exceptions
For that I use Click&Clean extension to clear all cookies, history, ... when Chrome closes,
for whitelist i use "Cookies" app (it has the "encrypted cookie storage"), it works great, but i don't know which the cookies i need add to whitelist, that keep me logged in to Gmail
Does anyone have any suggestions?

I don't worry about cookies too much. Most of them are harmless. I use Click&Clean to erase them when they accumulate. Any of the sites you normally visit will drop a new cookie any way. I wouldn't worry about making a white list. If you visit an undesirable site you could check to see if they dropped a cookie and delete it.
I will delete the history and cache when it gets too large with C&C also.

Simply add any cookies referring to a Google URL to your whitelist (I believe the important one is mail.google.com/mail).

You might consider CCleaner as an alternative, which can manage a combined whitelist for all cookies on your system from Firefox, Chrome, IE, the Flash plugin and probably a few more.

It also provides an "intelligent scanning" option for cookies that will automatically sort login-related cookies into the whitelist for you. It seems to do quite a good job at this, too.

I use LastPass to log in. The approach I took with cookies:

1) delete all my chromium cookies
2) set web content settings => Cookies to "allow local data to be set"
3) visit all the sites I want to keep the cookie and let LastPass log me in
4) close browser to save those cookies
5) Open browser and set web content settings => Cookies to "allow local data to be set for this session only"

6) close browser to make sure setting is saved.

Now the sites I visit all the time I don't have to wait for LastPass auto login because I have the cookie. Sites work because I let them save a cookie for the session. Sites I don't care about as much LastPass will either auto log me in, or I click the button after LastPass fills in the info.

I tried a bunch of those white list cookie utilities and they didn't work for me.
