What is a cookie?

& nbsp;

A cookie is a harmless text file that is stored in your browser when you visit almost any web page. The usefulness of cookies is that the web will be able to remember your visit when you return to this page. Although many people don’t know it, cookies have been in use for 20 years, when the first web browsers appeared.

& nbsp;

What is NOT a cookie?

& nbsp;

It’s not a virus, or a trojan, or a “worm,” or spam, or spyware, or open pop-ups.

& nbsp;

What information does a cookie store?

& nbsp;

Cookies do not usually store sensitive information about you, such as credit or debit cards, photos, ID, or other personal information. They usually contain technical data or personal preferences about the use of a particular website. For example, if you always visit a certain section of your bank’s page, a cookie may determine that you need to start loading that section before you click to enter, thus saving you time.

 

The web server does not associate you as a person, but with your web browser. In fact, if you regularly browse with Internet Explorer and try to browse the same web with Firefox or Chrome, you’ll see that the web doesn’t recognize you as the same person.
