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 do not perform these functions, they cannot be considered viruses.


Cookies can still be used maliciously. 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. Many antispyware software are unaware of this fact and constantly indicate that cookies should be removed during the removal / scan / antivirus / antispyware software 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 security aspects 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 continuously 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 (for example, a 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.


Tips for safe and responsible browsing based on cookies


Due to their flexibility and the fact that most of the most visited and largest sites use cookies, the latter are almost inevitable. Disabling cookies will not allow the user to access the most common and used sites, including Youtube, Gmail, Yahoo and others.


Here are some tips that can ensure carefree surfing, but with the help of cookies

 

  • Customize your browser settings for cookies to create an appropriate level of protection against the use of cookies.
  • If you do not mind the use of cookies and you are the only person who uses the computer, you can set longer expiration dates for storing browsing history and access to personal data.
  • If you share access to your computer with someone, you can change your browser settings to delete personal browsing data each time you close the browser. This is an option to access sites that distribute cookies and to delete any type of information from a visit after closing the browsing session.

 

Make sure your browser is always up to date

 

Many cookie-based attacks are implemented when exploiting vulnerabilities in older and out-of-date 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 refusal to receive cookies , you can make some sites unusable. Also, opting out of cookies does not mean that you will no longer receive / view online ads.


It is possible to set the browser so that these cookies are no longer accepted, or you can set the browser to accept cookies only from certain sites. But, for example, if you are not registered to use cookies, you will not be able to leave comments.


All modern browsers offer the ability to change cookie settings. These settings are generally in your browser's "options" or "favorites" menu.
