What are Cookies?
A « cookie » (term also known as « browser cookie » or « HTTP cookie » or simply « cookie ») is a small file, consisting of letters and numbers, which is stored on the electronic device through which the user accesses the website.
The cookie is installed through the request issued by a web server to a browser (eg: Internet Explorer, Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, etc.) and is completely « passive » (it does not contain software programs, viruses or spyware and cannot access information on the user’s hard drive). The cookie consists of 2 parts, its name and the information it stores. Cookies do not request information about the user’s data but store certain information in order to identify him at the level of the device connected to the Internet and not at the personal level.
From a technical point of view, only the server that sent the cookie can access it again when a user returns to the website associated with that server.

Why are cookies important?
Cookies help generate a friendly browsing experience adapted to the preferences and interests of each user. Refusing or disabling cookies may make some sites unusable. Rejecting or deactivating cookies does not mean that you will no longer receive online advertising – but only that it will no longer be able to take into account your preferences and interests, highlighted by your browsing behavior.
Cookies are not viruses! They use text-type formats. They are not made up of pieces of code that can be executed. Consequently, they cannot be duplicated or replicated to other computers or networks to run or replicate again. Due to the lack of these functionalities, they cannot be considered viruses. Cookies can still be used for negative purposes. They store information about users’ preferences and browsing history that can be used by Spyware. Many anti-spyware products are aware of this fact and constantly mark cookies for deletion as part of antivirus/anti-spyware wipe/scan procedures. In general, browsers have integrated privacy settings that provide different levels of cookie acceptance, validity period and automatic deletion after the user has visited a certain site. Since identity protection is very valuable, it is advisable to be aware of the problems that can be caused by cookies. There is a constant exchange of information between the browser and the website through cookies, and if an attacker or unauthorized person intervenes in this process, the information contained in the cookie can be intercepted. This can happen if you connect to the Internet over an unsecured network such as an unencrypted wireless network. Due to their flexibility, cookies are used by most websites, including some of the most famous (Youtube, Google, Facebook, etc.). Cookies are therefore unavoidable and disabling them will lead to faulty functionality and even the impossibility of accessing certain sites.
If you don’t mind cookies and you are the only person using the device, you can set long expiration periods for storing browsing history and personal access data. If you share computer access, you may consider setting your browser to delete individual browsing data each time you close the browser. This is an option to access sites that place cookies and delete any information related to them when you close your browser. Always install and update antivirus/antispyware applications. All modern browsers offer the possibility to change cookie settings:
- Cookie settings in Microsoft Edge
- Cookie settings in Mozilla Firefox
- Cookie settings in Chrome Settings
- Cookie settings in Safari
