How to implement Cookieless Session in ASP. Net

By default ASP.Net relies on cookies to store session id. Cookies are actually a text data which is stored in browser. Generally cookies are not considered a safe way to store information. Also there is a chance that browser have disabled the cookies and in that case our application wont work on that browser.

To avoid such situation, we can use Cookieless session. To implement that you just need to set cookieless attribute to true in your session tag. Here is how you can do this:-
  <sessionState mode="InProc" cookieless="true" timeout="120" />

Once you have done that your URL will contain the session id, here is the snapshot of URL before and after implementing cookieless=true:-
As you can see that in the URL session id is visible.
