The web is a stateless platform meaning that information cannot be passed from one page to another.
To avoid information being passed at the end of a URL PHP session cookies are used which stores a unique ID only to reference data stored on the server for the duration of the session only.
Example https;//nzservers.com?id=JSmith&pword=HelloThere
(note the above is fictitious but I’m sure you may have seen sites like this)
Using the above method avoids using cookies but is unsafe as data can be manipulated.
The main difference between a PHP session and a cookie is that session data is stored on the server, whereas cookies store data in the visitor’s browser. … Data stored in the cookie can be stored for months or years, depending on the life span of the cookie. But the data in the session is lost when the web browser is closed.
