It was suggested that I should delete my "cookies" to solve a problem I have been having with my account. What's a cookie, in the context of Stack Exchange?

  • Extending the answer, it solves that you don't have to log in every time. It is also very useful to track you everywhere on the Internet (the SE doesn't do this, but the Facebook and the Google, yes.) | It may have a significantly different meaning on the Seasoned Advice SE. :-) – peterh says reinstate Monica Sep 10 '17 at 2:03
