HTML Session Storage

The HTML Session Storage allows you to access and save data (key/value pairs) in a web browser.

Note: The properties of Session Storage as follows:

  • Unlike Local Storage, the data stored in Session Storage is cleared when the page session ends.
  • Closing a tab/window ends the session and clears objects in Session Storage.
  • The keys and values are always strings.

How to view Session Storage?

Follow the below steps to view your data stored in the Session Storage:

  1. Go to Developer Tools or Press F12 or Press Ctrl + Shift + i.
  2. Switch to Application Tab on the top navigation bar.
  3. On the left side menu you will find the Session Storage.

Note: If you couldn't find your recent changes in the Session Storage, close and reopen the developer tools to see the changes.
