Local Storage replaced by Secured Storage?

I was looking through the Ionic 2 docs today and noticed that the Local Storage section was gone and now there is a new section “Secure Storage”. I have been using Local Storage and I am wondering why the sudden change has been made. I am having issues with Secure Storage and I want to know if Local Storage is still being supported.

Thank you

See here: Where is Storage and LocalStorage in rc0?

And here:

Oh okay that will help a lot! The thing is I can still use local storage. Should I use LocalForage?

thats a personal choice…
