I am trying to remove an entry in the localStorage from a protractor test

describe('The feature', function() {
beforeEach
(function() {
browser
.executeScript('localStorage.removeItem("key");');
});
it
('should do this', function() {
});
});

but i get this error when the test is run in chrome

UnknownError: <unknown>: Access to 'localStorage' is denied for this document. Storage is disabled inside 'data:' URLs.

Another potential solution is to put any state clearing in an afterEach, which will run after any test is run: (see https://github.com/angular/protractor/issues/188)

afterEach(function() {
browser
.executeScript('window.sessionStorage.clear();');
browser
.executeScript('window.localStorage.clear();');
});
