What are browser Cookies, what are they for and how do they work? Have you ever wondered what are the Cookies that are mentioned every time you enter a new website? Yes, those for which you need to give your explicit consent for their use and that usually ask you for it in the form of a small pop-up window on the different pages you visit. Although it is very common today, due to international regulations, few really know what they are and what they are used for exactly . The truth is that, although all websites ask you for permission to use them in your browser, hardly anyone explains what they are, except for small comments such as: " we use them to offer a better service " or " we use our own and third-party cookies to give you the best promotions ” . This, far from giving us an answer, leaves us with a greater intrigue. But don't worry, because in this guide I'm going to teach you everything you need to know about them. I anticipate that they are more important than many believe, since they influence a large part of the user experience we have on the Internet . Thematic content menu What are Cookies? What exactly are Cookies for? What are the types of Cookies that exist? What benefits do Cookies have if you have an Online Business? Can I browse the Internet without Cookies? What are Cookies? Cookies ( or computer cookies) are small files created by a website to be sent and stored in a browser. Once downloaded, these files collect information about the user's behavior in that browser, so that said activity can be queried by a Web server. Likewise, so that you better understand their meaning, I must also clarify what they are not: they are not any type of virus, or programs to spy on the user, in fact, this could not be further from the truth. Imagine it this way: You are a website and a person accesses your Web Domain address for the first time with his browser . So, you open a document on their hard drive, so that a small amount of information about that connection's activity is automatically collected in it, so that the browser can then resend it to you when you request it. In this way, and consulting these small previously collected data, in future connections you will be able to predict their behavior and better adapt to the specific needs phone number database of that user. Another important thing to clarify is that none of these text files is an executable or can be executed, they are not computer programs that can be installed in your browser, much less on your computer , which is why they are safer. And no, they don't save your personal information or bank accounts and send it to other people. Rather, they are designed to collect very specific data on the user's behavior and activity when moving around the Internet from a single browser. Where are Cookies stored? You already know what Cookies are, but now you may be wondering: where are they stored? Simple, on your computer . These files are first generated by the pages you visit, then they are sent to your browser and it stores them in its own installation folder, that is, inside your computer (or more specifically, in a folder on your system hard drive). As would happen, for example, when you create a new text in a Word file and then save it in a folder within "My Documents", to access it when you need it. Next, I show you the file that is generated in Google Chrome
