Definition and Usage

The localStorage and sessionStorage properties allow to save key/value pairs in a web browser.

The sessionStorage object stores data for only one session (the data is deleted when the browser tab is closed).

Tip: Also look at the localStorage property which stores data with no expiration date. The data will not be deleted when the browser is closed, and will be available the next day, week, or year.


Browser Support

The numbers in the table specify the first browser version that fully supports the property.
