  • If you wanted to explain to a friend what a browser cookie is, what would you say?
  • Can you remember some of the things that our browsers may expose when we visit a website?
  • What could you do to fix some of the leaks or vulnerabilities we talked about?
  • Is there a situation in which you might not want to block cookies?
