When a user surfs websites on the internet, small files get saved in their systems. These files are known by various names - cookies
, web cookie, browser cookie, internet cookie etc. Cookies
basically keep track of the browsing activities of the user
and important information like username or password
can be stored in cookies. Web cookies are not harmful files in the line of spywares, rather they help in connecting one to the website easily. The cookies
get stored as an HTTP header
that the system utilises to get connected to the website faster.
(Also known as: web cookie,browser cookie, computer cookie, tracking cookie, internet cookie, and HTTP cookie)
Cookies are small files saved on your computer when you visit some websites. They may contain things like passwords so you can log onto the site without entering again and again your login and password. They are not spy or dangerous programs but useful files helping you to connect to websites more easily (it is sent as an HTTP header by a web server to a web client and then sent back in an unaltered form by the client each time it accesses that particular server).
So don't worry about them and don't delete them!
