|Software makers have lately come under a lot of pressure from users and regulators to provide adequate privacy protecting features with their offerings. As the internet continues to become more open, thanks to the likes of Facebook, people have become conscious about how and what they share online. This has driven software makers to offer privacy protection tools that not only offer an unhindered user experience but also help the companies gain users' trust.

Cookies are primarily used by websites to track a user's online activity on particular websites for target based advertising and offering a customized user experience.
