When it comes to creating applications, the data of users is an important aspect of giving a good user experience. User data could include things such as preferences and settings that users apply to a web platform. It’s essential that these details are safe and secure from unauthorised access.

There are many ways to save user data, but in this post, we will concentrate on three options: Local Storage (local storage) and Session storage (session storage) and App Data. Each option has its own pros and cons, however all of them are suitable for the storage of tiny amounts of data inside the browser.

App data is perfect for storing preferences and settings specific to apps. It is crucial to keep in mind that app data doesn’t persist so any app data is lost when a user closes his browser or if their session ends. It is also important to remember that app data is not secure as anyone with the decryption key will be able to view the information. It is recommended that app data is not used to store sensitive information such as passwords.

Session storage is similar to app data in that it is also application-specific, but it is a lot more scalable and allows for a much larger amount of data to be stored. Similar to app data however, session data isn’t a permanent storage. If the user deletes the browser’s cookies or the session is over, all of the application session data will be deleted.
