To clarify a bit, a cookie can only be accessed by the domain that set it, so there is no danger of information stored in a cookie being viewed by unauthorized sites. Log-in information is generally stored in persistent cookies which need to remain on your computer in order to be of any use. Tracking cookies are different. They are usually set by advertisers as a way to know which of their ads have been accessed on various sites by the PC.
