Local Storage is a new way of storing (structured) data on a client’s computer. Local Storage behaves more like persistent cookies in terms of expiration.

Highly vulnerable data, such as financial information, is not stored or secured using Local Storage.isExternal.
Strictly necessary cookies are essential for the website to operate properly. These cookies enable you to navigate the website and use its features. For example, a so-called “session” cookie which makes sure that you don`t have to keep logging in on every page you visit and that keeps track of your account and provides online banking services.
Session cookies do not have an expiration date. Instead, they are stored only as long as the browser or tab is open. As soon as the browser is closed, they are permanently lost. For instance, those type of cookies are used to store a banking user’s credentials while they are navigating within their bank’s website since their information would be forgotten as soon as the tab is closed.
