  • Keeps the user identified so that, if you close a service or website, the browser or the computer, and at another time or another day you re-enter the service or site, you will be identified again, thus facilitating navigation without having to identify yourself again. This function can be deleted if the user presses “Exit”. Then the cookie is deleted and the next time you enter the site you must log in to be connected.

When the user logs into a service with social network credentials or a third-party identification system, this authorized them to keep a persistent cookie that remembers your identity and guarantees access to the website until it expires.
