Browsing Cookies

Cookies, more properly called HTTP cookies, are small bits of data stored as text files on a browser.
Websites use those small bits of data to keep track of users and enable user-specific features.
Using Shield an Admin can add Browsing Cookie to their website (domain) and child sub-domains
Using cookies the server can obtain particular information about the browser:

For instance:

  • that this is not your first visit to the site
  • that you are logged in to the service and many more
