What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small text file which is generated by a website and stored in a folder on your computer. The cookie stored is unique to your computer. 

Why are cookies needed?

Cookies are needed to make websites work better. For example when you add an item to your shopping cart on the Amazon website the contents of the shopping cart are stored in the cookie. Another example would be when you log into a webmail service such as Hotmail or Gmail a cookie is generated that confirms you are logged in. When you log off the cookie is deleted.
