Keith Greer Session Management and Validation Settings in Magento Configuration

Cookie and session management is an important aspect of any ecommerce store. Everything from a customer’s cart, checkout process and recently viewed products is made possible by knowing who is using the website. This is where cookies come into play.

The Session Cookie Management options specify how and where cookies are set and used in your Magento store.

The Session Validation Settings ensure the safety of the information stored in sessions by checking known information gathered from previous visits by a customer matches the current information.
