Introduction:
In my previous article I have explained about How to Add httpcookie using C#.net. In this article I am going to explain about how to delete the browser cookies using C#.Net code.
Explanation:
You cannot directly delete a cookie on a user's computer. However, you can direct the user's browser to delete the cookie by setting the cookie's expiration date to a past date. 

To assign a past expiration date on a cookie

1.      Determine whether the cookie exists, and if so, create a new cookie with the same name.
2.      Set the cookie's expiration date to a time in the past.
3.      Add the cookie to the Cookies collection object.

Below is the method  used to delete the cookie.
protected void DeleteCookie(string cookiename)
{
    if (Request.Cookies[cookiename] != null)
    {
        HttpCookie myCookie = new HttpCookie(cookiename);
        myCookie.Expires = DateTime.Now.AddDays(-1d);
        Response.Cookies.Add(myCookie);
    }
}
Sample usage of the method is given below.
DeleteCookie("name");
