Re: just a quickie folks

Hi @ernie2009 

Websites use cookies to keep a record of your most recent visit or to record your login information. It's very useful for storing passwords on frequently used sites, so you don't need to sign in again. However if you clear/delete your cookies this information is no longer stored which means you need to sign in again.

Most sites also give you the option of storing your login details so yuo don't need to login each time, unless you clear your cookies.

Cookies are used by most sites, although you can go into the browser settings and  turn them off for individual sites. Imagine the carry on if you turned them off for Asda, Amazon etc where you do online shopping. Without the cookies being enabled those sites wouldn't be able to store goods you are wanting to buy in your basket. You would need to check out for each individual item you bought.
