The main reason for deleting cookies is to ensure your privacy.
Deleting your cookies will also delete any usernames and passwords that your browser has saved. Other people using your computer, tablet, or smartphone will no longer be able to simply sign in to your accounts. Deleting cookies will also prevent advertisers and commercial parties from monitoring your online behavior.
If you don’t delete your cookies for a long time, your computer, tablet, and smartphone could theoretically slow down as well. So, it goes without saying that you delete all cookies from time to time.
