What Is A Cookie?

A cookie is a small text file that is placed on your computer, smartphone or tablet by websites that you visit. They are widely used to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the site. Cookies are used by nearly all websites and do not harm your system.
