What is a cookie?
Pieces of information transferred to your computer’s hard disk from a website are known as ”cookies.”
They are not computer programs. Instead, they are just small data files that allow websites to store and access information about a user’s browsing patterns.
There are different types of cookies. Temporary cookies (or session cookies) are erased when the browser closes while persistent cookies are not erased but remain active until they are manually erased or expire (which is dependent on how long the website has programmed the cookie to last).
