Cookies basically contain personal information. A potential intruder can easily access your personal information like passwords from cookies. So it is recommended that you delete them often. Advertisers often look at your cookies to see your shopping habits, and if you are creeped out by seeing tailored ads, or you are tired of seeing ads for what you've already purchased and no longer need, then you can delete your cookies.

The benefits of cookies include keeping you logged into your favorite sites or holding items in a shopping cart between visits to the site.
