The main difference being that session data is stored on the server, while cookie data is stored on the client. Therefore, a client can easily modify the cookie contents, but will have to work way harder to modify the session contents.

Cookies are a means to store information in the end-user's browser, so that the server can track the end-user.

Sessions are also implemented by using cookies, but the actual data is not in the browser; rather, it is stored in the user's session record on the server. In the case of sessions, cookies are used to identify a particular end-user's session identifier on the server records. Hence, they are a more secure way of storing user information.

There are session and Cookies, both are used to store values or data. But there are some key differences between session and cookie: a cookie stores the data in your browser and a session is stored on the server. Cookie data is available in your browser up to expiration date and session data available for the browser run, after closing the browser we will lose the session information.
