Are there other forms of storage a part from cookies?
There may be 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:
- LocalStorage and HTML5 sessionStorage: Space that the web can use on the user’s computer. Normally it can be deleted by deleting the browsing history.
- Flash “Local Shared Objects” (Silverlight’s “isolated storage”): They are stored in the Microsoft folder where the user profile is. You have to enter the folder and delete it. (Example: vimeo videos). Flash works to incorporate multimedia elements into a web, and for to do that it stores files on the user’s computer.
- The beacon web is used to track your activity, inserting a mini-image (difficult to notice). When you browse the web, the image is loaded along with the page, and the server where the photo is downloaded, 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, they save more information, and are independent from the browser used. We do not use this type of storage.
