What Is A Cookie?

A cookie is a small text file that is placed on your computer, smartphone or tablet by websites that you visit. They are widely used to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the site. Cookies are used by nearly all websites and do not harm your system.

Cookies allow websites to recognise a user's device and store some information about the user's preferences or past actions. A cookie will typically contain the name of the domain from which the cookie has come, the "lifetime" of the cookie, and a randomly generated unique number or other value.

Types of Cookies

Cookies fall into one of two types:

1. Session Cookies

Session cookies are temporary cookies that are stored on your computer during your web session and are automatically deleted when you close your browser. Session cookies typically store an anonymous session ID allowing you to browse a website without having to log in to each page. They do not collect any information from your computer.

2. Persistent Cookies

Persistent cookies are stored on your computer and remain there after you close your browser. Persistent cookies remain on your computer for the period specified by the "lifetime" of the cookie. These cookies can only be read by the website that created it when that website is visited again.
