Tips and warnings
- Cookies are turned on by default in most Web browsers, so you will generally not have to manually enable them unless you are either having problems with automatic logins or storing items in an online store's shopping cart. Nevertheless, you can always check your settings without making or saving any changes, if you want to be sure you have cookies enabled.
