What Are Browser Cookies?

Browser cookies are small files used to collect information when you visit a website that personalize your experience and track your usage. This can be good and bad.

Three situations where you want to “pass the cookies” and decline are:

  1. If the website is sketchy and non-encrypted (e.g., HTTP only).
  2. If the cookie consent pop-up mentions third-party cookies.
  3. If you’re uncomfortable sharing your information on a website. Avoid cookies on sites where you do your banking, access your medical information, or use other private information.

Don’t get caught with your hand in the cookie jar. If you’re afraid that you already accepted cookies, use your browser’s “clear cookies” option. IT Radix is your not-so-secret ingredient to your company’s security solution!
