    By default, WordPress generates two types of cookies.

    • Session cookies
    • Comments cookies

    Session cookies are set when a user logs in to a WordPress site. These cookies contain a user’s authentication details, and the settings for the admin area interface. Login cookies in WordPress expire every 15 days.

    When a user leaves a comment on a WordPress powered website, WordPress automatically sets a cookie containing user’s name, email address, and URL. This cookie allows WordPress to automatically fill username, email, and URL fields on the user’s subsequent visits. The comment cookie expires in 347.222 days or 30000000 seconds.
