What Is A Cookie?
A cookie is a small text file containing information that is placed on your hard drive when you visit a site. It is generated by the website’s server, and the information the cookie contains can be used by that same server whenever the user re-visits the website. A cookie is almost like your identification card, telling a site when the same user has returned.
