Browser cookies are used to remember the user’s login information and session details for a website. However, the Samsung Internet browser does offer the option to block or allow browser cookies. You can customize and block the cookies and even block only third-party cookies for privacy protection.
Cookies are small pieces of information that websites store on your computer. Cookies only store text information, nothing more than that. The text information can be a username, password, or any other that a website requires to keep track of your login activities in an encrypted format. Cookies are an integral part of the browser and help them to remember your login information.
When you enable browser cookies on Samsung Internet, the websites you visit will be able to remember you to make your login information more comfortable. If you’re surfing for a website that requires a login or wants to customize the preferences on the website, you’ll need to enable browser cookies.
Besides advantages, cookies also threaten your browser’s security and privacy. Advertisers take advantage of the cookie’s information to record your browsing activities, which can be used to display ads while browsing. That’s why most people prefer to disable browser cookies on Samsung Internet.
