re: LocalStorage vs Cookies: All You Need To Know About Storing JWT Tokens Securely in The Front-End VIEW POST


If you use Express, then it could be worth looking at Express Session and the option to save the data to Redis:

    name: 'sessionForApplication',
    secret: process.env.SESSION_SECRET,
    saveUninitialized: true,
    resave: true,
    cookie: {
      expires: expiryDate,
      domain: process.env.APP_DOMAIN
    store: new RedisStore(optionsForRedis)

Yes, redis is the best oneπŸ™‚, also cookies would be my second option for JWT based storage


Hi Wayne, Putri here – Michelle's cofounder.

This is very helpful, Express Session with Redis is definitely a great option. Thanks for the comment!


A pleasure, and glad to help.
