What are cookies?

A “cookie” is a small piece of information sent by a web server to store on a web browser so it can later be read back from that browser. They are simple, very small text files stored on your computer when you browse certain web pages, useful for having the browser remember some specific information, usually helping to improve the user’s browsing journey.

They can’t install malware programs or trojans on your computer. Typically they are small lookup tables, containing pairs of key-data values and nothing else.
