Security cookies are cookies that are used to enhance the security of a website. They may be used to protect against security threats, such as cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks or SQL injection attacks, or to implement authentication and authorization mechanisms.
Security cookies may be set by the website owner or by third-party security services. They may be used to store security-related information, such as login credentials or session IDs, or to track the user’s actions on the website in order to identify and prevent security threats.
It’s important to note that security cookies are not the same as secure cookies, which are used to secure the transmission of sensitive information, such as login credentials or financial data, over an encrypted connection.
You can see what kind of cookies a website places by going to the developer tools in your browser. Check it out!
