Yes, if you *really* need to persist sensitive data, sessionStorage is 
MUCH better than localStorage.

 From https://www.owasp.org/index.php/HTML5_Security_Cheat_Sheet

  * Use the object sessionStorage instead of localStorage if persistent
    storage is not needed. sessionStorage object is available only to
    that window/tab until the window is closed
