I'm a bit confused by their statement that using cookies helps with encryption in the browser. I'm sure that whatever they do with cookies in the browser, could have been done better with use of IndexedDB or localStorage technology. Also, I would expect a service like this not to require cookies, so it's relevant that we include this point in the review.
