What is web Cookie?
Unlike the one we eat, Web Cookies are tiny pieces of data that websites leave on users’ devices. When a visitor loads up a website, the page checks if there it’s cookies stored in that device.
This helps improving user experience of your site. Like, showing the same pop-ups or banners every time someone visits the site can become really annoying.
Thus keeping a record of visitors’ activity to certain features can become handful. If a user turns off a feature, you know he/she doesn’t like it. So, not to display that feature further when that user visits your website is a wise idea.
Why using cookies helpful?
Cookies can hold data about visitors’ location. Presenting specific content based on the region or country is obviously gonna bring more focus to the site.
Saving login information also can eliminate the hassle of logging into the site by entering username and password.
Overall, cookies can be used to draw a virtual portrait of visitors to show different content based on pageviews.
Presenting user-specific content will surely gonna give your website a fresh look. Every time a visitor loads the page will enhance the user experience.

GDPR Cookie Consent and Legal Necessity of showing WordPress Cookie Notice
If your website welcomes visitors from Europe, you must have to include a GDPR cookie banner on your website. One of the keystones of the EU’s GDPR law.
The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the data protection & privacy regulation for the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA) that also addresses transfer of personal data outside of the EU and the EEA region.
Under GDPR, it’s the liability of websites to take definite consent of users for a specific purpose.
This is why it’s strictly essential for you to show a cookie use announcement. As to take the approval of visitors before using cookies on your website.
To do so, many use WordPress GDPR cookie plugins. However, if you are using our Cookie Consent widget, you don’t need any extra GDPR cookie consent plugin.
