How to clear session storage data with specified session storage item ?
  • Last Updated : 22 Jan, 2021

In this article, we are going to learn how we can clear the session storage of a browser using JavaScript by getting the specified session storage item.

We can achieve this by using Window sessionStorage( ) property. The Window sessionStorage() property is used for saving key/value pairs in a web browser. It stores the key/value pairs in a browser for only one session and the data expires as soon as a new session is loaded.

Syntax:

window.sessionStorage

We can get specified session storage using the getItem() method.

sessionStorage.getItem('GFG_Item')

We can clear the session storage by using the clear() method.



sessionStorage.clear()

Example:

HTML




<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
  
<head>
    <meta charset="UTF-8">
    <meta name="viewport" content=
        "width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
  
    <style>
        body {
            text-align: center;
        }
          
        h1 {
            color: green;
        }
    </style>
</head>
  
<body style="text-align: center;">
    <h1 style="color: green;">

        }
  
        // Checking if session storage is empty
        function isEmpty() {
  
            // If session storage is empty
            if (sessionStorage.length == 0)
                document.getElementById('isEmpty')
                    .innerText = 'It is empty';
            else
                document.getElementById('isEmpty')
                    .innerText = 'It is not empty';
        }
    </script>
</body>
