Cookies are a small piece of data sent by a web server. It is stored on the user's computer. The Web browser, whenever it opens a page, forwards this piece of data to the web server as part of an HTTP request. It is used to save user data. These are simple text data, a character set that is passed when requests to a website. Cookies can be used by the server to identify users. This happens as follows: 1. The user enters the login and password and sends them to the server. 2. The server receives the user's login and password, if correct, sends a successful login page by attaching cookies 3. When requesting a page from the server, the browser automatically sends cookies with the user ID. The server checks its identifier database and "recognizes" the user. Something like that...
