cookie s_sq_ information about the cookie and how it is written


Level 2

Hi everyone,

I would like to have more information regarding the s_sq cookie (I got a warning from the security department about the cookie and they asked us some questions about it):


- what is written inside the cookie?
- The security office warned us that inside the cookie there is the word "javascript". If this is true, why is it written?

Thanks a lot

Here's the documentation on the s_sq cookie: https://experienceleague.adobe.com/docs/core-services/interface/ec-cookies/cookies-analytics.html#se...

The part in bold is probably what's causing "javascript" to be in its value:
