What are cookies and how to work with them

 

In this article, we will introduce you to cookies, find out what format they have and why they are generally needed.

Cookies are data that is stored in the browser and remembers you. In practice, this is data that is not required from you to constantly log in to Facebook. Every day you open a tab and you are already in your profile-all this, thanks to cookies.

What cookies look like:


[{"domain":".facebook.com","expirationDate":1647605565,"httpOnly":true, ......

 

Something like this. Sometimes they may differ in content, this is not particularly important. This is usually a very long string and has tens of thousands of characters.

How to work with them?
