Most of us have a phone or some sort of device that we can get the Internet on. On these devices are things called “Internet cookies.” Internet cookies were designed to be a reliable mechanism for websites to remember information or to record the user’s browsing activity. So what does this all mean particularly when it comes to our privacy? Adam Greenhood from AdWallet discusses Internet cookies and how they work, what they mean, and what they should mean to us.
