Just wondering and I hope it does… if it would be worth the time for this course to explain that there cookies that are not serving an wholesome purpose. Like you know the likely candidates FAANG well maybe not so much Netflix ? Though I’ve never used the desktop version…but that serve marketing and tracking cookies that follow you around the internet. I was under the impression that’s how you get those ads that are oddly/eerily accurate and specific. After all this is at it core an internet security and privacy course.
