Nearly every time we use a new app we have to except cookies, yet how many people know what they are accepting?

A cookie is a small string of code that allows the owner of the app to have anytime access to your phone.

Some of these codes are used to speed up the process, others to target advertising, most are benign but how do you know?

You can refuse cookies and go to settings. Sometimes you cannot use that app unless you accept the cookies.

I think a lot more transparency should be available when you are asked to accept a cookie, they should tell you what they will use the cookie for and what safeguards you have against misuse.
