What is a cookie? A cookie is a small text file that is stored by the computer when a website is visited by a user. The text stores information that the site is able to read when it is consulted at a later time. Some of these cookies are necessary for the proper functioning of the site, others are useful to the visitor because they can safely store, for example, the user name or the language settings. The advantage of having cookies installed in your PC is that you no longer need to fill out the same information every time you want to access a site visited previously.
You can change the browser to disable cookies through a very simple procedure. Warning: by deactivating cookies, both username and password will no longer be stored on the site login box.
