Once I develop a web app, who decides what data can and cannot be stored in cookies?
How can one make sure that passwords will not be stored in cookies?


Thanks.

As regards personal data, you need to adhere to applicable law (like GDPR), no matter where the data is stored.

While developing an application, if I don't write any code of Cookies, will browser never save any data of my web app in Cookies?
