Advice on secure and responsible surfing, using cookies

Thanks to their flexibility and the fact that many of the most visited and biggest websites use cookies, their use is almost inevitable. Deactivating cookies will not allow the access of a given user to many of the most commonly used websites, including YouTube, Yahoo, Gmail and others.

Here is some advice, which can ensure safe surfing, but with the help of cookies:

  • Personalize your cookie browser settings, in order to create an adequate level of protection from the use of cookies.
  • If you are the only person, who uses the computer, you may set longer terms for expiration of the storage of the browsing history and access to personal data.
  • If you share your computer access with somebody, you may set your browser settings to delete the surfing data every time you close your web browser.
  • Ensure that your browser is always up to date. Many of the attacks, based on cookies, are realized when exploiting the weak spots of old and non-updated versions of the web browsers. Cookies are everywhere and they may not be circumvented if you would like to enjoy your access to the best and biggest websites on the Internet.

It is possible that you set your browser in a way that does not allow for cookies to be accepted anymore or you can set your browser to accept cookies only from certain websites. All modern browsers offer the option to change cookie settings. This includes computer browsers, as well as mobile device browsers. These settings can be found in the "options" menu or the "preferences" menu of your browser.
