What are cookies on websites?

Your web browser stores data in the form of cookies to record your behavior. A website that you visit might store a cookie on your web browser. If you return to that site, it can read that cookie to keep track of information like your username and password, search preferences, and interests

What are cookies used for?

Cookies are used to track website activity and browsing patterns in order to show consumers tailored adverts.

Cookie varieties

Here are the differences between three popular types of cookies, which are used for various purposes.

Cookies that are used only while you are actively surfing a website are called session cookies. Once you exit the website, the cookie, which was used to temporarily store information, is removed.

First-party cookies are those that are set by the website's owner in order to collect information. Online shopping cart contents, usernames, passwords, and language preferences are just a few examples of the data that first-party cookies can collect.

Cookies that are placed on a website by a party other than the owner are referred to as third-party cookies or tracking cookies.
