Notice of Chrome Update Effective 02/17/2020

Google Chrome will be changing the way their browser behaves upon release of Chrome version 80 scheduled for deployment on Feb 17, 2020.

With the release of Chrome version 80, Google Chrome will stop sending third-party cookies in cross-site requests unless the cookies are secure and flagged using an internet standard called SameSite. Other browsers are expected to eventually change their default behaviors as well in line with this change.

What is the impact of this change?

Vendors currently affected by this change:

Should you encounter any punch-out errors in Chrome come February 17, please try a secondary browser.
