What is a Cookie?
A cookie is a small file placed onto your browser that enables us to enhance your experience on BrowserStack by remembering your preferences.
What types of cookies does BrowserStack use?
We use two types: persistent cookies and session cookies. A persistent cookie helps us recognize you as an existing user, so it’s easier to return to BrowserStack or interact with our products without signing in again. After you sign in, a persistent cookie stays in your browser and will be read by us when you return to one of our products. Session cookies only last for as long as the session (usually the current visit to a website or a browser session).
What are cookies used for?
Cookies can be used to recognize you when you visit BrowserStack, remember your preferences, and give you a personalized experience that’s in line with your settings. Cookies also make your interactions with BrowserStack faster and more secure. Additionally, cookies allow us to bring you advertising off the BrowserStack website, and bring customized features. As of today, BrowserStack does not generally respond to “do not track” signals.
