A cookie can record information such as a user name and track a user who logs in across different devices. A cookie is a file that a website saves to your computer after you visit the site and allows it to understand your browsing activities on that site—such as what personal data you entered onto a site, what you put in your online shopping cart, which links on a website you clicked on, or what you searched for. Cookies create a profile of your online activities and help a site “remember” what you did so that when you go back to it, it can present you relevant content and advertising, even if you log in on a different device.
