8. Why are cookies so important to the internet?
Cookies represent the central point of the Internet’s normal functioning, helping in generating friendly experiences and adapted to the preferences and interests of every user. Refusing or deactivating cookies can make some websites impossible to use.
Refusing or deactivating cookies does not mean that you will not receive advertising online (product ads from other websites) – but these will not take into account your interests and preferences, pinpointed in the navigation behavior.
Examples of important uses of cookies (that do not require authentication of users through an account):
- Content and services adapted to user preferences – categories of services and products.
- Offers adapted to user interests – remembering passwords.
- Remembering protection filters of copies regarding content on the Internet (family mode options, safe search functions).
- Limiting the frequency of ads – limiting the number of displays of an ad for a certain user on a website.
- Supplying relevant ads to each user.
- Measuring, optimizing analytics characteristics – such as confirming a certain level of traffic on a website, type of content viewed, and the way a user reaches a website (ex: search engines, direct, from other websites, etc). Websites that run such analyses of their use can improve websites to the benefit of their users.
9. Security and problems linked to confidentiality
Cookies are not viruses. They use plain text formats. Cookies do not have bits of cod and as a result, cannot execute or autoplay. As a result, they cannot duplicate or replicate in other networks or play or replicate again. Because they cannot perform such functions, cookies cannot be considered viruses.
Cookies can still be used for negative purposes. Because they store information about the preferences and navigation history of users, for a specific website or more websites, cookies can be a form of spyware. Many anti-spyware products are aware of this fact and constantly they mark cookies for deletion during procedures of deletion/scanning anti-virus/anti-spyware.
In general, browsers have built-in confidentiality settings that supply different levels of acceptance of cookies, viability period and automated deletion after a user visited a website.
Other aspects about security linked to cookies:
Because identity protection is very valuable and represents the right of every internet user, it is important to know that cookies can create certain problems. Through them, there is an exchange of information between browser and website and if an attacker or unauthorized person intervenes in the data transmission process, information can be intercepted.
Even though in rarely, this thing can happen if the browser connects to a server using a network without encryption (ex: unsecured Wi-Fi network).
Other attacks based on cookies imply wrong cookie settings on servers. If a website does not ask browsers to use encrypted channels, attackers can use this vulnerability to fool browsers to transmit information through unsecured channels. Attackers use this type of information in order to access without permission various websites. It is important to be attentive in choosing the right protection method for personal information.
Advice for safe and responsible navigation, based on cookies.
There are a couple of recommendations that can ensure safe navigation but with the help of cookies:
Familiarize yourself with the browser settings in regards to cookies in order to reflect a comfortable level for you in matters of security of cookie use.
If you do not have a problem with cookies and you are the only person using the computer, you can set long-term expiration cookies in order to store navigation history and access personal data.
If you share access to a computer, take into account setting the browser to delete individual navigation data every time you close the browser. This is an option to access websites that place cookies and delete any information regarding closing navigation sessions.
Install and update application antispyware.
Many of the applications to detect and prevent spyware include detecting attacks on websites. As a result, such apps prevent the browser from websites that might exploit browser vulnerabilities or download dangerous software.
