Different Types of Data Storage

Data storage is crucial for applications that track user progress as well as allow logins or perform any other essential purpose. There are several ways to store user data but the best choice depends on the type of problem you’re trying to solve.

Local storage is ideal for the storage of small amounts of data that don’t need instant syncing, such as login or user registration data. However, it’s restricted by the size of the device’s hard drive and can only be accessible via client-side code (and cannot be manipulated through server-side scripts). Local storage is also vulnerable to losing data when an application is deleted, or the device reset.

Database storage is great for storing larger amounts of data that require editing. You can keep track of the information of your users by saving a unique identifier and referencing it whenever you access the database. This is more complicated than other options for data storage, but it can be an ideal choice for enterprise or large-scale apps which require storing information from multiple sessions.

WebView2 uses UDFs to store information about the browser, including cookies, permissions, and cached resources. The data expires according to the user’s Web & App Activity settings. It’s also possible to be manually cleared by the user through Actions on Google. You must select a UDF that has Write Access to the WebView2 to store additional data from the user. See the WinUI 3.cs file in the WebView2Samples repo for an example of how to do this with ICoreWebView2Environment7.
