  1. What it does: This cookie is used by the Wordfence firewall to perform a capability check of the current user before WordPress has been loaded.

    Who gets this cookie: This is only set for users that are able to log into WordPress.

    How this cookie helps: This cookie allows the Wordfence firewall to detect logged in users and allow them increased access. It also allows Wordfence to detect non-logged in users and restrict their access to secure areas. The cookie also lets the firewall know what level of access a visitor has to help the firewall make smart decisions about who to allow and who to block.
