Android Cookies not being deleted

Bug description:
I am implementing an OAuth2 flow for users and upon re-loading the react-native-webview with the login url after logging out on iOS devices the authorization form is displayed as it should be however incorrectly on Android devices users are taken straight into the application as if already logged in as if the Auth cookie is present. I have all the props I can see as relevant set below but still no luck.


To Reproduce:
Set the source to any url which requires Auth and sets cookies such as login and then reload the bundle. On iOS devices you are shown the login form, on Android devices you are logged in already.

Expected behavior:
Cookies should not be set and url should ask for authentication

  1. i don’t want incognito because the app needs to store various cookies to function. the problem is that android does not delete cookies in one particular scenario even though it has been instructed to do so.
