Some people have concerns with their online privacy due to cookies. These little bits of morsel data stored on your computer from a website can enhance your online experiences when you (re)visit a website. Unfortunately, a few bad instances–including a few so-called ‘super cookies’–are giving web browser cookies a bad rap altogether.

What it really comes down to in order to bring cookies back into a positive light is knowledge. Knowing about the different types of cookies out there can help you stay on the lookout for any suspicious activity. The following infographic shows you what a cookie is, along with the different forms it may take.

    Having knowledge is uber key Daniel. Some flip out when they hear about cookies being stored, and your data/info being recorded, but if you dig deeper you can weed out the ignorant thoughts and gain confidence in your browsing experience. Learn a little more to be at ease, I say.

    Cookies are crucial for making the site usage experience of a visitor a good one. But at the same time, there are some concerns arising too, regarding the misuse of cookies. But knowing more about the topic of cookies and clearing doubts will benefit a lot. This infographic just does that task. It very well explains nuances associated with cookies.

    The concepts like first party cookies, third party cookies etc are well explained. Also, the information regarding types of cookies, how they work etc makes it easier for readers to know more about cookies, clearing many misconceptions and doubts.

    Glad that more light on XSS vulnerability has also been provided. Knowing more about it will help us stay away from and avoid getting harmed by them.

    I found the link to this infographic on Kingged.
