Managing cookies

Note: Episerver Forms is only supported by MVC-based websites and HTML5-compliant browsers.

Episerver Forms uses the following cookies:

Cookie NamePurpose
.EPiForm_VisitorIdentifier Stores a GUID which is the visitor identifier.
.EPiForm_BID Stores a GUID as the browser ID.
EPiForm_{FormGuid}:{Username} One cookie is created for each form and each logged in user. It stores the current submission status of the form (formGuid, submissionID, and if submission is finalized or not).
These are internal cookies (implemented by below service classes) and should not be touched. If you really need to, change the class to your implementation.

You can set up a time to expire these cookies by changing the value of visitorSubmitTimeout in Forms.config. The default is 90 days.
