Why cookies aren't that bad...

A cookie is simple piece of text in a file that remembers something about you.

Without cookies, a website has no memory it cannot remember who you are from one page to the next.

Now this can be a good and a bad thing. Without any memory, a website can't do a lot of stuff. It can't let you log in, because it forgets who you are. It can't let you buy anything, because it forgets what you're buying.

But it also means it can't track you. Some websites use cookies to remember what you do on their website, and to target ads at you. And some of those websites share their cookies, so that ads on one website know what you liked on another. This has scared a lot of people.

Cookies aren't automatically good or bad, but it's worth understanding what you can do about them.

You can turn them off completely, which is a bit like banning all music to prevent another Justin Bieber album. Many websites simply won't work.

A better option would be to turn off 3rd party cookies, which will stop most websites from sharing information about you. Some browsers, like Safari, do this automatically.

And finally, you can take a deeper look into any websites which concern you. Most websites have policies that explain what they do, if you care to look.

Well over 90% of websites use cookies.

Still not sure or want to understand Cookies better and how to disable them? These guys know their stuff Cookies & You
