A “cookie” (also known as a “browser cookie” or “HTTP cookie” or simply “cookie”) is a small file of letters and numbers that is stored on the electronic device through which the user accesses the website.
The cookie is installed by a request issued by a web-server to a browser (e.g. Internet Explorer, Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, etc.) and is completely “passive” (contains no software, 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 ask for information about the user’s data but store certain information in order to identify the user at the level of the device connected to the internet and not at the personal level.
Technically, only the server that sent the cookie can access it again when a user returns to the website associated with that server.
Cookies are used to provide users with a better browsing experience and services tailored to the needs and interests of each individual user, namely to:
The lifetime of a cookie is determined by the web server that set the cookie.

Cookies help to generate a friendly browsing experience tailored to each user’s preferences and interests. Refusing or disabling cookies may make some sites unusable. Refusing or disabling cookies does not mean that you will no longer receive online advertising – just that it will no longer be able to take into account your preferences and interests as evidenced by your browsing behaviour.
Cookies are not viruses! They use text formats. They are not made up of executable pieces of code. Consequently, they cannot be duplicated or replicated on other computers or networks to run or replicate again. Because of their lack of functionality, they cannot be considered viruses. Cookies can however be used for negative purposes. They store information about user preferences and browsing history and can be used for Spyware. Many anti-spyware products are aware of this fact and constantly mark cookies for deletion as part of antivirus/anti-spyware deletion/scanning procedures. Browsers generally have built-in privacy settings that provide different levels of cookie acceptance, validity period and automatic deletion after the user has visited a particular 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 web site through cookies and if an attacker or unauthorised person intervenes in this process, the information contained in the cookie can be intercepted. This can happen if the internet connection is over an unsecured network such as an unencrypted wireless network. Because of their flexibility, cookies are used by most websites, including some of the most popular ones (Youtube, Google, Facebook, etc.). Cookies are therefore unavoidable and disabling them will result in poor functionality and even inability to access certain sites.
If you don’t mind cookies and you are the only person using your device, you can set long expiry times for storing browsing history and personal access data. If you share access to your computer, you may consider setting your browser to delete individual browsing data each time you close your browser. This is a way of accessing sites that place cookies and deleting any cookie information when you close your browser. Always install and update anti-virus/anti-spyware applications.
