Do cookies contain personal data?
Why are cookies important for the Internet?
Cookies are a central point for the effective functioning of the Internet, helping to create a specific model of preferences and interests of each user. Disagreeing or disabling cookies may make some sites unusable.
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 favorites and interests collected through browsing behavior.
Examples of important cookie roles (which do not require account authentication):
Security and confidentiality
Cookies are NOT viruses! They use plain text format. They are not made up of pieces of code, so they cannot be executed or run on their own. Therefore, they cannot be duplicated or copied to other networks to start or copy again. Because they cannot perform these functions, they cannot be considered viruses.
Cookies can still be used for negative purposes. Because they store information about preferences, as well as the user’s browsing history, both on a particular site and on most other sites, cookies can be used as a form of Spyware (spyware). Many anti-spyware software is unaware of this fact and constantly indicates that cookies should be removed during the removal / scan / anti-virus / anti-spyware procedures.
Browsers typically have built-in privacy settings that provide different levels of cookie acceptance, expiration date, and automatic deletion once a user has visited a site.
Other aspects of security related to cookies:
As the protection of personal data is extremely important and is the right of every Internet user, it is recommended to know the possible problems that cookies can create. They send information permanently and in both directions between the browser and the website, and in the event that a hacker or other unauthorized person interferes during the sending of the data, then the information containing cookies can be intercepted.
In rare cases, this can happen if the browser connects to the server using an unencrypted network (eg: wireless password-free network).
Another type of cookie-based attack requires 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 trick browsers into sending information through unsecured channels. Hackers then use the information to gain unauthorized access to certain websites. It is very important to be careful when choosing the most appropriate protection of personal data.
Advices for safe and responsible browsing based on cookies
Here are some tips that can ensure carefree surfing, but with the help of cookies:
Make sure your browser is always updated.
Many cookie-based attacks are implemented when exploiting vulnerabilities in older and outdated versions of browsers.
Cookies are everywhere and cannot be avoided if you want to enjoy access to the best and largest websites – local and international. With a clear understanding of how they operate and the benefits they bring, you can take the necessary security measures so that you can surf the Internet with confidence. Disabling or declining cookies may make some sites unusable or difficult to visit and use. Also, opting out of cookies does not mean that you will no longer receive / view online ads.
All modern browsers offer the ability to change cookie settings. These settings are located in the “options” or in the “favorites” menu of each Internet browser. To find these settings, you can also use the links below or use your browser’s “help” option for more information.
