Does WordPress use cookies?

Yes, WordPress uses cookies for authentication and comments. User cookies are created when a user logs in to their account, so they don’t have to enter their credentials each time. Commenter cookies are also created when a user comments on a post, remembering their name, email, and website.

Third-party plugins or tools you use on your WordPress site may also use cookies, such as social media plugins that track user interactions to provide personalized content. However, these cookies may be subject to regulations such as GDPR or CCPA, and website owners must ensure they comply with these regulations when using them.
