What are cookies? Are they safe?
Cookies are used for storing information about your web browser to help identify you to the website. This can be used for keeping you logged into a website or keeping certain preferences you have set on a website. Although cookies are mostly not malicious, there are malicious uses such as tracking websites that you use and building a profile of you to sell to companies. These are usually called third-party cookies and most web browsers have a setting to block these. Blocking cookies completely may cause issues with web browsing on certain sites, so it isn’t recommended, but can also be done through your web browser preferences.
