Why are cookies important for the Internet?

Cookies are the focal point of the efficient functioning of the Internet, helping to generate a user-friendly browsing experience tailored to the preferences and interests of each user. Refusing or disabling cookies may make some sites unusable. Refusing or disabling cookies does not mean that you will no longer receive online advertising, but only that it will no longer be able to take into account your preferences and interests, highlighted by your browsing behavior.

Security and privacy issues

Cookies are NOT viruses! They use plain text formats. They're not made up of pieces of code so they can't be executed or can't self-run. Therefore, you cannot duplicate or replicate on other networks to run or replicate again. Because they cannot perform these functions, they cannot be considered viruses. Cookies can still be used for negative purposes. Because it stores information about users' preferences and browsing history, both on a particular site and on several other sites, cookies can be used as a form of Spyware. Many anti-spyware products are aware of this fact and constantly mark cookies to be deleted as part of anti-virus/anti-spyware removal/scanning procedures.

In general, browsers have built-in privacy settings that provide different levels of cookie acceptance, shelf life and automatic deletion after the user has visited a particular site. Other security aspects related to cookies:

Because identity protection is very valuable and represents the right of every internet user, it is advisable to know what possible problems cookies may create. Because information is constantly transmitted in both directions between the browser and the website, if an attacker or unauthorized person interferes in the transmission of the data, the information contained in the cookie can be intercepted.

Although very rarely, this can happen if the browser connects to the server using an unencrypted network (e.g. an unsecured WiFi network). Other cookie-based attacks involve wrong cookie settings on servers. If a website does not require the browser to use only encrypted channels, attackers may use this vulnerability to trick browsers into sending information through unsecured channels. Attackers then use the information for unauthorized access to certain sites. It is very important to be careful in choosing the most appropriate method of protecting personal information.

Tips for safe and responsible cookie-based browsing.

Due to their flexibility and the fact that most of the most visited sites and the largest ones use cookies, they are almost inevitable. Disabling cookies will not allow the user access to the most widely used sites including YouTube, Gmail, Yahoo and others.

Here are some tips that can ensure that you navigate without worry but with the help of cookies:

Customize your browser settings regarding cookies to reflect a comfortable level for you of the security of the use of cookies.

If you don't mind cookies and you're the only person using your computer, you can set long expiration times for storing your browsing history and personal access data.

If you share access to the computer, you can consider setting your browser to delete individual browsing data each time you close your browser. This is a way to access sites that place cookies and delete any visitation information at the close of the browsing session.

Install and constantly update your anti-spyware applications.

Many spyware detection and prevention applications include site detection of attacks. This prevents the browser from accessing websites that could exploit browser vulnerabilities or download dangerous software. Make sure your browser is always up-to-date. Many of the cookie-based attacks are carried out by exploiting the weaknesses of old versions of browsers.

Cookies are everywhere and can not be avoided if you want to enjoy access to the best and largest sites on the local or international Internet. With a clear understanding of how they operate and the benefits they bring, you can take the necessary security measures so that you can confidently browse the Internet.

Disabling and refusing to receive cookies may make certain sites impractical or difficult to visit and use. Also, refusing to accept cookies does not mean that you will no longer receive/see online advertising.

It is possible to set these cookies in your browser to stop being supported, or you can set your browser to accept cookies from a specific site. But, for example, if you're not registered using cookies, you won't be able to leave comments.

All modern browsers offer the possibility to change cookie settings. These settings are usually found in options or in the preference menu of your browser. To understand these settings, the following links can be useful, otherwise you can use the browser help option for more details.
