What is a Cookie?

Cookies are small files which are used on most websites to store certain information about the user. The 2 main types of cookies are a session cookie or a persistent cookie. Session cookies are used just for the duration on the site and persistent cookies are used for repeat visits.

The purpose of cookies is to allow the site to remember you and your preferences, which allows the site to work faster and enhance your user experience.

An example of where cookies are used is on a shopping web site. Without cookies the shopping cart would not remember the choices made so the site would not function properly. Registering and logging into a site is another example where cookies are used to remember you.
