Is localstorage reliable enough for game data?

Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm making a browser game where the only saving is done to localstorage with JSON data. I've seen some odd behaviour and wondered whether locastorage is actually reliable enough for save data and whether its worth putting in a backup / saving somewhere else too just in case?

All opinions welcome.

Hi,

 

Since localstorage is a client side storage, client can access and modify it, also if user cleans up the browser storage or cache, it will clean up the whole data in localstorage.

If you have any sensitive data to your game then its better you store or sync it with your server. Otherwise local storage is the best option.
