8. Why are cookies important to the Internet?
Cookies are a central point for effective web-based functioning, helping to design a particular pattern of preferences and interests of each user. Disabling or disabling cookies may make some sites unusable for use.
Disabling or disabling cookies does not mean that you will no longer receive online ads, but that these will no longer appear in your account for preferred and interesting cookies collected through your browsing behavior.
Examples of important cookie roles (which do not require authentication via an account):
- Content and services adapted to user preferences – product and service categories.
- Offers tailored to user preferences – remembering passwords.
- Save child protection filters on Internet content (family mode option, safe search function).
- Restricting ad usage frequency – limiting ad submission to a specific user on the site.
- Providing ads that would interest the user.
- Measurement, optimization, and analytics features – how to verify a level of traffic on the website, what kind of content is visualized, and how a user reaches a website (e.g., search engines, directly, other websites, etc.). Websites develop these analyzes and their use to improve the site for the benefit of consumers.
9. Security and confidentiality
Cookies are NOT Viruses! They use the form of plain text. They are not made up of parts of codes, so they cannot be executed nor executed independently. Therefore, they cannot be duplicated or copied to other networks to start or replicate. Because they cannot perform these functions, they cannot be considered viruses.
Cookies can still be used for negative purposes. As they store preference information, as well as the history of user browsing, both on a particular site and on most other sites, cookies can be used as a form of Spyware. Many anti-spyware software are unaware of this fact and consistently mark cookies to be removed during removal / scanning / anti-virus / anti-spyware procedures.
Typically, browsers have built-in privacy settings that provide different levels of cookie acceptance, expiration date, and automatic deletion after the user has visited a site.
Other security aspects related to cookies:
Since data protection is extremely important and is the right of every Internet user, it is advisable to know the potential issues that cookies can create. It sends constant and bidirectional information between the browser and the website, and in the event that a hacker or other unauthorized person interferes at the time the data is sent, then the information containing the cookies can be intercepted.
In rare cases, this can happen if the browser connects to the server using an unencrypted network (e.g., a wireless password-protected network).
Other types of cookie-based attacks require incorrect cookie settings on the server. If a website does not require the browser to use only encrypted channels, hackers can use this vulnerability to deceive browsers when sending information through unsecured channels. Hackers then use the information for unauthorized access to certain websites. It is very important to be careful when choosing the most appropriate personal data protection.
