What are Cookies

HTTP cookies (also called web cookies, Internet cookies, browser cookies, or simply cookies) are small pieces of data stored on the user’s computer by the web browser while browsing a website. Cookies were designed to be a reliable mechanism for websites to remember stateful information (such as items added in the shopping cart in an online store) or to record the user’s browsing activity (including clicking particular buttons, logging in, or recording which pages were visited in the past). They can also be used to remember pieces of information that the user previously entered into form fields, such as names, addresses, passwords, and payment card numbers.

Cookies are necessary so that most websites work properly. A basic website can function without serving cookies, but most websites need some cookies stored on the user’s computer so that the website remembers the user’s language preference and other preferences.

More About Cookies

Cookies are created and stored on the user’s computer when the user’s browser loads a particular website. The website sends information to the browser which then creates a text file, known as a “cookie”. Every time the user goes back to the same website, the browser retrieves and sends this “cookie” file to the website.

There are multiple types or categories of cookies:

Session Cookies

Session Cookies are temporary cookies stored in the user’s browser memory just until the browser is closed. When the browser is closed, these cookies are deleted.

Persistent Cookies

Persistent Cookies are cookies that have an expiration cookies.

Authentication Cookies

Another important type are the authentication cookies that are the most common method used by web servers to know whether the user is logged in or not, and which account they are logged in with. Without such a mechanism, the site would not know whether to send a page containing sensitive information, or require the user to authenticate themselves by logging in.
