1. What are cookies?

 

Cookies are widely used tiny pieces of software (files) that are installed on a computer or mobile device when an individual visits a website.

 

Windows Explorer, which is one of the main internet browsers, will usually store these files in a folder called ‘cookies’ in ‘documents and permissions’ on computers running Microsoft Windows.

 

Cookies allow websites to recognize that a user on an individual computer has previously visited the site. The cookies save some information about that user for when they access the site again in the future.
