Session Storage

Learn about session storage and how it works.

Session storage allows the user to store the data in a browser. Session storage utilizes the data for a particular session and the data is cleared when the user closes the browser tab or browser window.

Session storage is the most appropriate for sensitive data such as user authentication.

How Session Storage Works

When an unauthenticated user is having a conversation with the brand website, a unique page session storage is created and assigned to that particular tab in your browser. This page session is specifically valid for that particular tab.

The page session is valid as long as the tab or the browser is open and this session is restored over page reloads. The session storage is also copied when you duplicate the browser tab in your browser.

After you close a tab or window with the same url as the brand website, the session storage is cleared.
