But WHAT IS HECK? Stay strong and hold your knickers because in this video I am answering a question,
“What are Cookies?” And explain how they work!
They can have a variety of activities, such as:
1. Keep track of that user’s browsing data to provide targeted information such as ads for goods, or services.
That’s why if you browse Amazon to find your dog’s Halloween costume, you’ll be seeing ads on Facebook over time to find more dog costumes.
2. Remember your login details for a specific website.
Thanks to Cookies, you can close a website like Facebook, and open it again later without signing in again.
3. Cookies may also allow website owners to track exactly how many unique visitors find on their website. Because each cookie has its own unique ID.
So if a user visits the same website 2 or 3 times a day, the cookie allows us to see this as a different viewer.
Website owners can therefore collect accurate information about their website traffic.
Where do cookies come from? Why?
The first cookie was made in 1994 through the 24-year-old Netscape Communications program Lou Montulli.
He was creating an online store for a company that said their servers were too full to store each shopping cart data as they browsed the store.
So he thought back to the old computer token called the “magic cookie” that was used to identify when someone came in
A program by transferring a small amount of data between a server and their computer.
Lou then redefined the web concept so a modern day cookie was born!
How do cookies work?
It’s okay if you visit a website for the first time, for example let’s say an online store, the website will place a cookie on your computer’s hard drive, with a unique identification code.
The reason for this is that it can track things like these that you have in your shopping cart,
or the items you have viewed to suggest similar items, or to save coupon codes
used even if you close the website and return to it later in the day.
There is another type of cookie called a third-party cookie. I will explain by example.
then use it to target your targeted ads the next time you scroll down your Facebook news feed.
But not all cookies break the secrets of the parasite and can help you to have more fun browsing and save more time and time on the web.
If for some reason your browser does not support cookies, FUDforum will use sessions, which do not store data on your computer.
During the login process you can choose to bypass the cookie program and select a session setting, this is recommended when using the public terminal.
Doing so will prevent potential identity theft, which is possible if you do not sign out after using the forum.
In most cases, however, you may have left Cookies enabled as it is much easier over time.
For example, you do not need to sign in each time you visit a forum.
How do you delete a FUDforum cookie?
To delete a cookie set by FUDforum, simply click the opt-out link and it will automatically delete the cookie.
