Cookies from the perspective of computer security and privacy protection

Although cookies are stored in the Internet user’s computer memory, they cannot access / read other information in that computer. Cookies are not viruses. They are just small text files; they are not compiled as a code and cannot be executed. Thus, they cannot self-copy, they cannot spread to other networks to generate actions and they cannot be used for virus spreading.

Cookies cannot search for information in the user’s computer, but they store personal information. This information is not generated by cookies, but by the user, when he / she completes online forms, registers on certain sites, uses electronic payment systems, etc. Although, as a rule, sensitive information is protected from being accessed by unauthorized persons, it is possible for such persons to intercept the information transmitted between the browser and the website. Even if they are quite rare, such situations can occur when the browser connects to the server using an unencrypted network, such as an unsecured WiFi channel.

Cookies can be used by online advertising companies to monitor the user’s behavior and online preferences, in order to identify and deliver to the user the most relevant advertising messages. But these preferences are not explicitly or consciously expressed by the user, but are modeled according to the user’s online browsing history, the pages viewed by him, the accessed advertising messages. For example, when the user reads a page about school supplies and then moves to another page, advertising messages about school supplies will be displayed on the new page, even if it is not related to the school supplies. Since the user is not informed that his online actions are monitored, this raises concerns regarding the protection of privacy.

Management, deactivation and deletion of cookies

Cookies are everywhere and cannot be avoided if you want to enjoy access to the best and largest sites on the Internet – local or international. With a clear understanding of their mode of operation and the benefits they bring, you can take the necessary security measures so that you can surf the Internet with confidence.

Disabling and refusing to receive cookies may make certain sites impractical or difficult to visit and use. Also, refusing to accept cookies does not mean that you will no longer receive / see online advertising, but only that it will no longer be able to take into account your preferences and interests, evidenced by your browsing behavior.

It is possible to set in the browser so that these cookies are no longer accepted or you can set the browser to accept cookies from a particular site. But, for example, if you are not registered using cookies, you will not be able to leave comments. All modern browsers offer the ability to change cookie settings. These settings can be found (usually) in the “Options” or in the “Preferences” menu of your browser.
