How safe/secure is the data saved in html5's localStorage?
I understand that its acceptable to store & retrieve "non-secure" data such as language or font-size preferences and that information is freely available to anyone with access to that browser, but how about more sensitive/private data such as names, addresses and phone numbers?
For instance, would storing a user's phone number to later auto-populate various forms on a website constitute any breach of privacy/security? Also, are there any further implications/issues with this sort of data storage?
