Three Types of User Data Storage

The storage of user information is vital to providing an enjoyable user experience. It is the entire information that a user downloads to their device to use an app, and it should be secured from unauthorized access. There are many different kinds of user data storage each with its own pros and cons. This article focuses on three storage options for user data: local data storage, session data storage and app data.

Local Storage

Locally stored data allows apps to run offline, thus reducing the need for an internet connection. This type of storage is suitable for applications that require only the use of a small amount of data, like custom settings. Locally stored data is not persistent across sessions, and is deleted after the app is closed.

Session Storage

Similarly to local storage similar to local storage, session storage is a great choice for applications that require short-term storage of data. Session storage costs less than local storage and can be used to store data that doesn’t require to be kept for. For example login credentials or other data that is secure.

App developers can access customers’ data in three ways: either by requesting for it or interpreting it from user behavior on the site, or by purchasing it. Customers should be informed of how their personal information will be used and they should have an opportunity to opt-out of the collection of their information or rectify any errors. It is also important to keep customer data in a uniform format to allow easy integration and exchange.
