Constants

ConstantValueDescriptionDefined By
SAME_SITE_LAX 'Lax' SameSite policy Lax will prevent the cookie from being sent by the browser in all cross-site browsing context during CSRF-prone request methods (e.g. POST, PUT, PATCH etc). E.g. a POST request from https://otherdomain.com to https://yourdomain.com will not include the cookie, however a GET request will. When a user follows a link from https://otherdomain.com to https://yourdomain.com it will include the cookie yii\web\Cookie
SAME_SITE_STRICT 'Strict' SameSite policy Strict will prevent the cookie from being sent by the browser in all cross-site browsing context regardless of the request method and even when following a regular link. E.g. a GET request from https://otherdomain.com to https://yourdomain.com or a user following a link from https://otherdomain.com to https://yourdomain.com will not include the cookie. yii\web\Cookie
