Browsers have integrated privacy settings that offer different levels of Cookie acceptance – such as validity period and automatic deletion at the end of a web session.

10. Other security aspects related to Cookies

Since all Internet users have the right to the protection of their online identity, it is advisable to be informed about possible security risks. Given that through these files information is constantly exchanged between the browser and the website you are visiting, the information transmitted through Cookies can be intercepted by unauthorized persons or programs. For example, this is possible if the browser connects to the server using an unencrypted/unsecured network – as is the case with certain Wi-Fi networks.

Other attacks based on Cookies may be possible due to wrong settings of these files on the servers. If a website does not require the browser to use only encrypted channels, attackers can use this vulnerability to gain access to information transmitted through Cookies. For these reasons it is essential that you pay close attention to the settings by which you protect your personal information available online.
