Delete Cookies

Cookie is a small and tiny file that a websites put on your computer to get information about your choices. It helps you by letting sites remember your choices and by avoiding you to login every time you visit. Thus it gives a better browsing experience but sometime it can expose your privacy, by tracking the details about sites you visit. Hence, it forces you to delete cookies from your computer.

How does cookies work?

As I mentioned earlier, cookies are small files which contains a little information and stored on your computer, sent by a website. What type of information is stored in, is upto the website and shared with that websites only. Let’s take an example how cookie works- suppose you visit some website, say abc.com. The process starts from your browser with the request you send by typing in your browser’s bar, abc.com. Then this request goes to the server which is hosting abc.com. This server respond with the requested page along with some extra data (say “user=1283” for example, but it could be anything). This extra data is a “Cookie”. Now, browser stores “abc.com,” “user=1283” on your computer and then displays the requested page. Next, suppose you want to go on another page of the same site by browsing the provided link “abc.com/some_otherpage.html”. Then the browser sends a request for “some_otherpage.html” to the abc.com and along with this it sends cookie (“user=1283”). Upon receiving the request server performs some operation on that cookies and responds with requested page.
