Cookies store login data, you can usually give them to others and they can inject it into their browser and you magically get logged in.

Many websites use hijacking prevention, and IP checks to bypass this. It is rare these work, and if they do, it isn't for long.

Yes, except they are deleted when you close your tab/browser.
