A cookie is a file containing an ID (a string of letters and numbers) that is sent by a web server to a web browser and stored by the browser.
The identifier is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. Cookies are small pieces of data stored in a visitor’s browser. They are usually used to track what settings users have selected and what actions they have taken on a site.
