Data storage is an essential feature for applications that wish to monitor the progress of users, allow login or perform various other functions. There are a variety of ways to store user data however the most efficient solution depends on the problem you’re trying to solve.

Local storage is great for keeping small amounts of information that don’t need instant syncing, such as login and registration details for users. It’s only accessible through client-side code and is limited by the hard drive size. Server-side scripts can’t alter it. Local storage is also prone to lose data if an application is removed, or the device reset.

The database storage is ideal for storing large quantities of data that will need to be edited. You can track the data of your users by storing the unique identifier of each user and then refer to it whenever you access the database. This is more complicated than other options for data storage however, it can be a good fit for enterprise-level or large-scale applications that require storage of the user’s data across multiple sessions.

WebView2 stores browser data using UDFs. This includes permissions, cookies and cached resources. This data expires in accordance with the user’s Web and Application Activity settings. It is cleared manually via Actions on Google. To store additional user information, you must specify the user’s personal UDF location that has Write access to the WebView2. See the WinUI 3.cs file in the WebView2Samples repo for an example of how to do this with ICoreWebView2Environment7.
