Cookies are small text files that are sent and stored on your computer, smartphone, or other device used to access the Internet whenever you visit a website. Cookies are in principle necessary because they allow a website to recognize a user’s device and to adapt its content to it.
For example, the site remembers your actions and preferences (such as login, language, font size, and other display preferences) for a time, so you do not have to enter these preferences each time you visit the site or another page in it.

Cookies are not viruses. They are not code fragments. Therefore, they can not multiply and spread to other networks. Since they can not perform these functions, they do not fall into the standard definition of the virus.
