A cookie is a type of data file that a website stores on your computer, allowing it to remember your computer the next time you visit the same website. Cookies are small pieces of information that are exchanged between your web browser and an internet server. They contain information about how you use the website.
It's important to know that cookies are not harmful - they cannot spread viruses or malicious software. On the contrary, they help the website owner understand how people use their site so they can improve the user experience. Sometimes, cookies are also necessary to provide certain services.
Cookies are usually automatically deleted when you close your web browser (these are called "session cookies"). However, some cookies may have an expiration date, so they are stored on your computer for a shorter or longer period (these are called "HTTP cookies"). These are typically stored on your hard drive.
Cookies can be either "first-party cookies," set by the website you visit, or "third-party cookies," set by a third party, such as advertisers displaying content on the website you visit.
