What is a Cookie?
A cookie is a small file sent from a website which is then stored by your web browser. When you return to the website the information in the cookie can be used to recognise your last session.
Cookies can't install malicious software such as viruses on your device, whether that’s a computer, tablet or a mobile phone.
How long does a cookie stay on your device?
Cookies stay on your device for different periods of time depending on what kind of cookie they are.
Session cookies normally only last while you have your internet browser open. Once you close your browser they’re automatically deleted from your device.
Persistent cookies typically stay on your device after you close your internet browser unless your browser is set up to automatically delete them. They can be used by websites to remember your preferences when you open up your browser again.
You can change your settings within your browser to clear them automatically or after a period of time. You can also block or restrict cookies within your browser settings, with a plug in or security software, but this can affect website performance or stop parts of a site from working.
