A cookie is the name for a small file that is downloaded to a user’s devices when visiting certain websites. These cookies then get sent back to the website when you visit it again.

A good example of a website that uses cookies to personalise your experience is Google. Google saves cookies on your computer to personalise searches every time you use their search engine.
