Default Re: do cookie files ever expire?

Look up the different types of cookies. Some expire after 1 hour, some after 1 day, some after 1 week, some after 1 year, and some never expire.

EDIT: You would need to check and see what kind of cookies you're dealing with in order to find out if they've expired or not.

Depends on the website, and the preferences they've set for it.

Just don't eat the 10 year old cookies....

Seriously though if you get on that account even a couple times a year, it'll never really expire.
