2. What are cookies?
Basically, cookies are a small amount of data that is transmitted between a sender and a recipient. A cookie is created and interpreted by the sender while the recipient just keeps it and sends it back if the sender requests it.
When browsing the internet, the sender is the server that hosts a website and the recipient is the browser of the user who visits that site. Their purpose is to identify the user, verify their past activity on that site, and provide specific content based on these data.
When a user visits a site for the first time, the server stores a certain cookie in its browser (browser). For all successive visits to this first visit, the server will ask for the cookie to read and load a particular web site configuration that is most appropriate for that user. You can see cookies as a label that servers apply to each user, and then read them to identify users.
This identification is especially useful on websites where real-time user data is critical. For example, when you use an online store, you cannot buy anything without cookies. Stores cannot identify you and assign you a shopping cart without them because every time you upload a new page, the store would look like a new user and create a new cart.
As such, cookies are widely used on the internet because they allow websites to be more powerful, providing dynamic and useful content for each user. In some cases, websites cannot work without using cookies. They also allow websites to collect data about their users and the pages they visit. Like any other technology, they can also be used for less ethical purposes. That’s why it’s a good idea for everyone browsing the internet to know how it works and how it can be used.
