What are cookies?
What you’re being warned about are text files that your web browser (like Chrome, Safari, etc.) stores on your device. Cookies have become ubiquitously used for things like authentication (e.g. automatically logging in to your Youtube or Amazon profile), storing website preferences, etc. They also can be used to track everything you do on the sites you visit. Poorly designed cookies can contain your username and password for a site, and there are even criminals that use them to try to collect and steal your personal information. So, you should use caution and judgement when you’re visiting unfamiliar sites. But, the vast majority of cookies are just tools that programmers use to make your life easier and their organizations better.
