Set cookies in WKWebView

Hello good day.
I have an app that opens a website with credentials of a particular user within a WkWebView. When the user wants to download a file, it is already PDF, Word, Excel, TXT. WkWebView does not set the cookies that contain the credentials of the user logged on the web.
Is there a way to set cookies so that pressing the download button on my website will download the file to my cell phone?

    We need to manually add cookies like what this thread said:
    It was a swift answer. We could convert it to Xamarin like:

    NSDictionary properties = NSDictionary.FromObjectsAndKeys(new NSString[] { new NSString(""), new NSString("/"), new NSString("key"), new NSString("value") },
                                                                new NSString[] { NSHttpCookie.KeyOriginUrl, NSHttpCookie.KeyPath, NSHttpCookie.KeyName, NSHttpCookie.KeyValue});
    var cookie = new NSHttpCookie(properties);
    await webView.Configuration.WebsiteDataStore.HttpCookieStore.SetCookieAsync(cookie);

    Hello LandLu.
    I am going to prove with what you have told me and I am writing to see how the change went.
    For the moment thank you very much for the contribution.
