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.
