Do only cookies exist?
It may be that there are websites that use other forms of storage similar to cookies but with more capacity, such as other forms of local data storage on the client's computer, for example:
- HTML5 LocalStorage and sessionStorage: Space that the web can use on the user's computer. Which can be deleted by deleting the browsing history.
- Flash's "Local Shared Objects" (Silverlight's "isolated storage"): They are stored inside the Microsoft folder where you have the user profile. You have to enter the folder and delete it. (Example: vimeo videos).
Flash is used to incorporate multimedia elements on a website, and for this, it stores files on the user's computer.
- The web beacon is used to track your activity, inserting a mini-image that you don't even notice. When you browse the web, it is loaded along with the page, and the server where the photo is downloaded from records the time of access, or the times you have accessed.
These files are more intrusive than cookies since they are more complicated to delete, save more information, and are independent of the browser used. We do not use this type of storage.
