What are cookies and why is it important?

Everyone has seen the website banners that ask you if you’ll allow cookies on your browser or not. A necessary part of browsing the web, cookies help web developers give you a more personal and convenient website visit. In short, cookies let websites remember you, your logins, shopping carts and more.

But they can also be a treasure trove of private info and a serious vulnerability to your privacy. Guarding your privacy online can be overwhelming.

Fortunately, even a basic understanding of cookies can help you keep unwanted eyes off your internet activity. Whilst most cookies are perfectly safe, some can be used to track you without your consent by cybercriminals.
