1. What are cookies?
A cookie (also known as a "browser cookie" or "HTTP cookie" or "Internet cookie") is a small file consisting of letters and numbers that will be stored on the computer, mobile device, or other equipment of a user accessing the internet.

6. Tips for Safe and Responsible Browsing Based on Cookies
Below are some tips that can ensure you navigate worry-free, but with the help of cookies:
- Customize your browser settings regarding cookies to reflect a comfortable level of security for you;
- If you don't mind cookies and you are the only person using the computer, you can set long expiration terms for storing browsing history and personal access data;
- If you share access to the computer, consider setting the browser to delete individual browsing data each time you close the browser. This is a way to access websites that place cookies and delete any visit information when closing the browsing session;
- Constantly install and update antispyware applications. Many spyware detection and prevention applications include site attack detection. Thus, they prevent the browser from accessing websites that could exploit browser vulnerabilities or download dangerous software;
- Ensure that your browser is always up to date. Many cookie-based attacks exploit weaknesses in older browser versions.
Cookies are everywhere and cannot be avoided if you want to enjoy access to the best and largest websites on the Internet – locally or internationally.
