Cookies are small text files that are stored on a user’s computer or device by a website when the user visits it.

WordPress uses cookies to provide certain functionality and improve user experience on the site. Some examples of how WordPress uses cookies include:

  1. Authentication: When a user logs in to WordPress, a cookie is set that stores their authentication credentials. This cookie allows the user to access pages and features that are restricted to logged-in users.
  2. Session management: WordPress uses cookies to keep track of user sessions. These cookies help WordPress remember which pages a user has visited, which forms they’ve filled out, and other information that’s important for the user’s session.
  3. Personalization: WordPress uses cookies to remember user preferences, such as language settings, font size, and other customizations.
  4. Analytics: WordPress plugins and themes may use cookies to track website analytics, such as the number of visitors, page views, and bounce rate.

It’s important to note that website owners must comply with privacy laws, such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and inform users about the use of cookies on their site.
