What are cookies on computers?
Also known as browser cookies or tracking cookies, cookies are small text files, often encrypted, that are placed in browser directories. Web developers use them to allow their users to navigate more easily and to develop certain functions. Because of their central role in augmenting and even enabling certain website processes, disabling cookies may prevent users from using certain web pages.
Cookies are created when a user’s browser loads a particular page. This page sends information to the browser, which then creates a text file. Each time that the user returns to the same page, the browser recovers this file and sends it to the page server. Cookies are not only created by the website that the user is visiting, but also by other websites that develop advertisements, tools or other elements present on the page that is being loaded. These cookies control how advertisements should appear or how tools and other elements of the website work.
How can I configure cookies?
Most browsers currently allow the user to configure whether to accept cookies and which ones. These settings are usually found in the ‘Options’ or ‘Preferences’ menu of your browser.
These are the instructions for configuring cookies in the main browsers, these instructions are guidelines and may be changed at any time by those responsible for them:
