Been in your shoes, only difference, I wasn't brave enough to ask. That post should help you weigh it up. I have sebtled on encrypted user data stored in index dB but making sure it invalidates on browser close. Anything else like names and credit cards I'd store in Couch server side then sync.

Can I use local-storage to use usernames.
I also heard session storage kind of thing in JavaScript.
Anyways thank you

Depends,

Are the user names email addresses?

by allowing usernames to be stored, you make the attackers job easier by doing 50% of the work for them. however, if when you auth, you have 3 credentials. username, date of birth (dont use this its easy to get DOB) and password then you could store usernames with no real impact?
