[Solved] How to maintain user session after exiting app

Hi, I would like to maintain the user session even after a user closes the App. if I logged in my application on my mobile, it should always be logged in whenever I try to access that application. I don’t Know how to start… Now, when the user do the login I store the email and the password in a local variable in my-app.js. Then I check with a request to my API if the user has the permission and then I show him the index…. but If the user close the app and then start it again I have to do the login. It’s not a good behaviour

Thank you in advance

You should store the details in the local storage. I personally use jStorage.

During the start of the App you read the data from the previous Session.

But I highly recommend not to store the passwd itself but a hashed value with some salt. If you need the e-mail (passwd recovery) it should be stored encrypted. In my app I stored the information (hashed /encrypted,) only on the server and returned a token back to the app as reference to the account.

Best regards

Hi Andreas,

I am looking to secure the login details and like to know you used to encrypt the login credentials in the app. Any help is appreciated.
