Cookie protection

P: n/a
Hi guy,

Is there any way to protect the browser's cookie, prevent users from
modifying it?

Seems some browsers, such as Opera, provides a very easy to use
interface for user to modify the cookie value.

No. If you wish to protect information from your users, keep it on your
server, and use only temporary cookies for transaction integrity.
