Sessions can’t be accessed by JS directly.
- implement a hidden field with the timestamp of the user login as value.
- update this field with the new timestamp each time the user makes a significant action.
- run a pseudo-cronjob with setinterval() , check if the value in the hidden field is older than your allowed session time.
setItem() This method is called to store values in session storage. This method takes in the key and values as parameters. In the above function, name is the key, while John Smith is the value.
Is session a cookie?

How do Sessions work?
Why is a web session used? (Web session use case examples)
Every time a user takes an action or makes a request on a web application, the application sends the session ID and cookie ID back to the server, along with a description of the action itself.
To fix the issue we want a tool to handle some key tasks for us automatically:
- Track which value derivation functions correspond to each state change.
- Re-run the derivation functions and track the changes in any return values.
- Pass changed values to the appropriate DOM API update methods.

Which is better localStorage or session storage?
Though sessionStorage properties also allow a key/value pair in a web browser just like localStorage, sessionStorage is a better choice over localStorage because session data is cleared when the browser tab is closed.
How long does session storage last?
It doesn’t expire automatically. So if you never close your browser it never expires. So when the tab/window is closed the data is lost. Each sessionstorage area is allowed 5mb of storage (in some browsers 10mb).
Is local storage same as cookie?
Cookies are smaller and send server information back with every HTTP request, while LocalStorage is larger and can hold information on the client side.
