What is a cookie?

Cookies are a technology that allows us to remember information about you.

Without cookies, a website is like a goldfish that loses its memory each time it visits a new page. Once you visit a new page, it does not remember who you are.

This is both a good and a bad thing. Without memory, a website cannot do much. It can't log in because it forgets who you are. You can't buy anything because it forgets what you are trying to buy.

But it also means that they cannot track you. Some websites use cookies to remember what you did on their websites and to target ads to you. Some websites also share cookies so that ads on one website can know what you liked on another website. This has terrified many people.

Cookies are neither automatically good nor bad, but it is worthwhile to understand what can be done about them.

It can be turned off completely, but many websites will not work.

Turning off third-party cookies is a good way to prevent most websites from sharing information about you. Some browsers, such as Safari, do this automatically.

And finally, if you find a website that interests you, dig deeper and look into it. Most sites have policies that explain what they do, so take a look if you are curious.

Over 90% of websites use cookies, and while cookies are neither automatically good nor automatically bad, it is important to understand what cookies can do.
