Cookies are most commonly used to track website activity. When you visit some sites, the server gives you a cookie that acts as your identification card. Upon each return visit to that site, your browser passes that cookie back to the server.

Cookies are small data files that are put on a user's system to track their internet usage like the websites they visit or the products they view. This helps big websites and companies to advertise their products and services to relevant users.
