Cookies are a central point of the efficient functioning of the Internet, helping to generate a friendly browsing experience and adapted to the preferences and interests of each user. Declining or disabling cookies may make some sites or parts of sites impossible to use. Disabling cookies does not mean that you will no longer receive online advertising in compliance with the law – but only that it will no longer be able to take into account your preferences and interests, highlighted by your browsing behavior.

Examples of important uses of cookies:

  • Content and services tailored to user preferences – product and service categories
  • Offers adapted to users’ interests
  • Retention of child protection filters on Internet content (family mode options, safe search functions)
  • Limit the frequency of ad serving – Limit the number of impressions of an ad for a particular user on a site.
  • Providing user-relevant advertising
  • Measuring, optimizing and adapting analysis features – such as confirming a certain level of traffic to a website, what type of content is viewed and how a user gets to a website (eg through search engines, directly from other websites etc.). The site conducts these analyzes regarding their use to improve their services for the benefit of users


Cookies cannot harm your computer! They use plain text formats. They are not made up of pieces of code so they cannot be executed or run. As a result, they cannot be duplicated or replicated on other networks to run or replicate. Because they cannot perform these functions, they cannot be considered viruses. However, cookies may be used for negative purposes. Because it stores information about users’ preferences and browsing history, both on a particular site and on several other sites, cookies can be used as a form of Spyware. Many anti-spyware products are aware of this and constantly mark cookies to be deleted during anti-virus / anti-spyware deletion / scanning procedures.
In general, browsers have integrated privacy settings that provide different levels of acceptance of cookies, validity period and automatic deletion after the user has visited a particular site.

Other security issues related to cookies:

Because 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 transmission of data, the information contained in the cookie may 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 incorrect cookie settings on servers. If a website does not require the browser to use only encrypted channels, attackers can use this vulnerability to trick browsers into sending information through unsecured channels. Attackers then use the information for the purpose of unauthorized access to certain sites. It is very important to be careful in choosing the most appropriate method of protecting your personal information.


Due to their flexibility and the fact that most of the most visited and largest sites use cookies, they 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 that you browse without worries with the help of cookies:

Customize your browser settings for cookies to reflect a comfortable level of cookie security for you.

If you do not mind cookies and you are the only person using the computer, you can set long expiration dates for storing your browsing history and personal access data.

If you share access to your computer, you can consider setting your browser to clear individual browsing data each time you close your browser. This is a way to access the sites that place cookies and to delete any visit information at the end of the browsing session.

Install and constantly update your antispyware applications.

Many of the spyware detection and prevention applications include site attack detection. This prevents the browser from accessing websites that could exploit browser vulnerabilities or download malicious software.

  • Make sure your browser is always up to date.
  • Many cookie-based attacks are exploited by exploiting the weaknesses of older versions of browsers.
  • Cookies are everywhere and cannot be avoided if you want to enjoy access to the best and largest sites on the Internet – local or 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.
