What are cookies?
Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a site. Cookies are widely used by website owners in order to make their website work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information.
First-Party cookies are created by a site you’re visiting. First-party cookies help a website carry out a number of purposes, such as allowing you to add more than one item to your online order. If you disabled first-party cookies, every time you added an item to your shopping cart it would be treated as a new order as you’d be unable to purchase more than one item in one transaction.
Third-Party cookies are created be a site you’re not currently visiting. They are most commonly used to track a user who’s clicked on an ad, associating them with the domain it’s referred to. For example, if you are on a website and you click on an advertisement, a third-party cookie is generated to associate your traffic with the website where the advertisement was shown.
Even though cookies do play a very important role in our browsing actives, there are a number of threats posed by these, especially white it comes to the invasion of privacy and the security of websites that are using them.
