But my question is If i delete browsing history including cookies,,Is that mean my affiliate programs(sites) not remember my referral id any more??what are disadvantages of deleting browser cookies daily as an affiliate.

    You delete cookies from your own browser - as long as the users clicking links either use a specific url with your id in it, or have a cookie on their computer / browser with your id, the links will be ok.
    However, if you have cookies in your browser that includes some ID that should be kept, you will delete this if you delete all cookies.
    Why do you want to delete cookies? Better you install some sort of browser extension that lets you allow / disallow cookies based on domain or similar.

    You have the option to keep the passwords saved or logins saved in your browser and delete the rest.

    Most browsers today come with the default setting that cookies only talk to the originating web site. This came as the result of security concerns raised by many of cookies stealing private info.
