1 hour CSRF stands for Cross Site Request Forgery. This cookie is a security enhancement for Expression Engine. Immediately before any forms are sent on the site, this cookie is set. Expression Engine then verifies that the cookie in the browser was the one that it set, therefore confirming the submission from the site is genuine.

The cookies “exp_last_activity” and “exp_last_visit” also allow us to optionally show you which content has been updated since your last visit.
