What is a cookie?

Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer by websites that you visit. They are widely used in order to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the site. They are also useful to provide you with more relevant information.


By default WikiNote (as with most of the web) identifies users who have already logged in by setting cookies. These can be the target of attacks. When a user logs in, three cookies are saved on his machine for his login details. The cookies are encrypted so that nobody having access to them can see the username/password.

WikiNote also takes care to block the cookies from being used except by the same IP address which got them.
