JavaScript sessionStorage


Example

The sessionStorage object implements the same Storage interface as localStorage. However, instead of being shared with all pages from the same origin, sessionStorage data is stored separately for every window/tab. Stored data persists between pages in that window/tab for as long as it's open, but is visible nowhere else.

var audio = document.querySelector('audio');

// Maintain the volume if the user clicks a link then navigates back here.
audio.volume = Number(sessionStorage.getItem('volume') || 1.0);
audio.onvolumechange = function(event) {
  sessionStorage.setItem('volume', audio.volume);
};

Save data to sessionStorage

sessionStorage.setItem('key', 'value');

Get saved data from sessionStorage

var data = sessionStorage.getItem('key');

Remove saved data from sessionStorage

sessionStorage.removeItem('key')
