Take a Bite Out of Cookies

Protect your privacy and keep your surfing habits to yourself with proper cookie-handling.

Cookies are small text files that web sites put on your hard disk to personalize the site for you or to track and then record your activities on the site. Cookies have gotten a lot of press—most of it bad—but the truth is, not all cookie use is bad. As a means of site customization, they’re a great way of helping you get the most out of the Web. They can also carry information about log-in names and passwords, which is a timesaver, since you won’t have to log into each site every time you visit. If you delete all your cookies, you won’t automatically get your Amazon wish list the next time you visit that site.
