Tracking Cookies

Cookies are small text files saved on your computer by websites. Some are used to remember your website preferences (such as your login username, or local zipcode for weather or movie listings.) Others are used to track your surf patterns between websites. These are also known as “tracking cookies” or “spyware cookies.” When choosing a spyware program, find out if it detects and removes tracking cookies. For more, read Walt Mossberg.
