What type of information is stored and accessed through cookies?

Cookies store information in a small text file that allows a website to recognize a browser. The web server will recognize the browser until the cookie expires or is deleted. The cookie stores important information that improves the Internet browsing experience, for example:

  • the language settings in which a website is to be accessed;
  • keeping a user logged into the account;
  • keeping the products in the shopping cart.

Why are cookies important for the Internet?

Cookies are central to the efficient functioning of the Internet, helping to generate a user-friendly browsing experience tailored to each user's preferences and interests. Rejecting or disabling cookies may make some websites impossible to use. Rejecting or disabling cookies does not mean that the user will no longer receive online advertising - but only that it will no longer be able to take into account the user's preferences and interests, highlighted by browsing behavior.

Examples of important uses of cookies (which do not require the authentication of a user through an account):

  • content and services tailored to the user's preferences – categories of news, weather, sports, maps, public and government services and entertainment websites;
  • offers tailored to user interests – retention of passwords, language preferences (eg.: displaying search results in Romanian);
  • retention of child protection filters regarding Internet content (family mode options, safe search functions);
  • measurement, optimization and analytics features – such as: confirming a certain level of traffic on a website, what type of content is viewed and how a user arrives at a website (eg through search engines, directly from other websites etc.). The owners of the websites run these analyzes to improve the websites, for the benefit of the users.

Security and Privacy Issues

Cookies are NOT viruses! They use plain text formats. They are not made up of pieces of code, so they cannot be executed, nor can they run automatically. Consequently, they cannot be duplicated or replicated to other networks to run or replicate again. Since they cannot perform these functions, they cannot be considered viruses. Cookies can, however, be used for negative purposes. Because they store information about users' preferences and browsing history, both on a particular website and on other websites, cookies can be used as a form of Spyware. Many anti-spyware products are aware of this fact and consistently mark cookies for deletion as part of their anti-virus/anti-spyware deletion/scanning procedures. In general, browsers have integrated privacy settings, which provide different levels of cookie acceptance, validity period and automatic deletion after the user has visited a certain site.

Other security aspects related to cookies

Since identity protection is very valuable and represents the right of every Internet user, it is advisable to know what possible problems cookies can create.

Because through them, information is constantly transmitted, in both directions, between the browser and the website, if an attacker or unauthorized person intervenes during the data transmission, the information contained in the cookie can be intercepted. Although very rare, this can happen if the browser connects to the server using an unencrypted network (eg: an unsecured WiFi network).

Other cookie-based attacks involve missetting cookies on web servers. If a website does not instruct the browser to use only encrypted channels, attackers can use this vulnerability to trick browsers into sending information over unsecured channels. Attackers then use the information to gain unauthorized access to certain sites.

It is very important for users to be careful in choosing the most appropriate method of protecting their personal information.

Tips for safe and responsible browsing based on cookies

Due to their flexibility and the fact that most of the most visited websites, including the largest ones, use cookies, they are almost unavoidable. Disabling cookies will not allow the user access to the most widespread and used sites, including: Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Gmail, Yahoo and others.

Here are some tips that can ensure you surf without worry, but with the help of cookies:

  • customize your browser settings regarding cookies to reflect a comfortable level of cookie security for you;
  • if you don't mind cookies and you are the only person using the computer, you can set long expiration periods for storing browsing history and personal access data;
  • if you share access to the computer, you can consider setting your browser to delete individual browsing data every time you close the browser. This is an alternative to accessing websites that place cookies and deletes any visiting information, upon closing the browsing session;
  • constantly install and update your anti-spyware applications. Many spyware detection and prevention applications include detection of site attacks. Thus, it prevents the browser from accessing websites that might exploit browser vulnerabilities or download dangerous software;
  • make sure your browser is always up to date. Many of the cookie-based attacks are made by exploiting the weak points of the old versions of the browsers.
