Testing Cookie Consent for the Web in Multiple Languages
Cookie consent solutions are critical for online businesses to thrive and establish trust with their users. As software testing professionals, we have a unique ability to shape not only quality within our own roles, but as human beings fighting for the greater good in data privacy. The cookie consent banners and dialogs we often see on the web exist for two primary reasons: to mitigate risks like privacy fines and damaging headlines and to show the world there is a way to do privacy right. Testing cookie consent dialogs across many languages and browsers can seem like a daunting task. I’ll talk about how we’ve scaled front end testing efforts for this specific problem at Osano, and how to integrate front-end automated test coverage for cookie consent banners in over thirty-six languages.
