    There is no choice between cookies and sessionhash.

    You will always have a sessionhash. You have the choice of storing it in your URL or in a cookie.

    By storing the sessionhash in a cookie, you make your access to a vBulletin forum more secure. However you must have cookies enabled to do this.

      Selecting no may cause problems when sharing links with people behind the same proxy as you
      "selecting no" = sending it through the links instead of cookies.
