WHY ARE COOKIES IMPORTANT ON THE INTERNET
Cookies are central for the effective functioning online helping for the preparation of a certain model of preferences and interests of every user. The disagreement with or disabling of cookies may render certain sites impossible to use.
The refusal or disabling of cookies does not mean that you will no longer receive online ads but that they will no longer appear in your account as preferred and interesting ones collected through the browsing behaviour.
Examples of important roles of cookies (which do not require certification through an account):
SECURITY AND CONFIDENTIALITY
Cookies are NOT viruses! They use the form of a simple text. They are not composed of parts of codes, so they cannot be executed nor are they executed separately. Hence, they cannot be duplicated or copied to other networks in order to run or be copied again. As they cannot perform these functions, they cannot be regarded as viruses.
Still, cookies can be used for negative purposes. As they store information about preferences, as well as about the user’s browsing history – both on a certain site and on most other sites, cookies can be used as a form of Spyware (spy software). Many antispyware software programmes are not aware of this fact and constantly mark cookies for removal during procedures for removal / scanning / anti-virus / anti-spyware software.
Browsers usually have built-in personal data privacy settings, which ensure various levels of acceptance of cookies, the period of validity and the automatic deletion once the user has visited a site.
Other aspects of security related to cookies:
As the personal data protection is exceptionally important and is a right of every internet user, it is recommended that you are aware of the possible problems that cookies may create. They are used to constantly send information between the browser and the website in both directions, and in case that a hacker or another unauthorised person interferes during the sending of the data, then the information containing cookies may be intercepted.
In infrequent cases this may happen if the browser connects the server by using a non-encrypted network (e.g.: a wireless network not protected by a password).
Another type of attacks based on cookies requires wrong settings of the cookies in the server. If a website does not require from the browser to use only encrypted channels, hackers may use this vulnerability to cheat the browsers in the sending of information through the unprotected channels. Then hackers use the information for the purpose of unauthorised access to certain websites. It is very important that you are careful in the choice of the most appropriate protection of the personal data.
ADVICES FOR SECURE AND RESPONSIBLE COOKIE BASED BROWSING
Disabling cookies will disallow the user’s access to the most popular and used sites, including but not limited to Youtube, Gmail, Yahoo and others.
