About cookiesCookies are files, often including unique identifiers, that are sent by web servers to web browsers, and which may then be sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server.
Cookies can be used by web servers to identify and track users as they navigate different pages on a website, and to identify users returning to a website.

A session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed.
