How to prevent Session variables from being shared by various Silverlight clients.

I've heard that if I send data from a Silverlight client to a asp.net server (through WCF) and store it in a session (on the server) that other users on other clients can access that session data also.
Is that true?
I don't want that to happen. I want each client to be able to store his own data and retrieve it later.
How do I make sure that happens?

This depends how you handle session in your WCF service. There are different InstanceContextModes, one of them is Single - in this case session is shared amongst ALL clients. What you want to use is PerSession. More info can be found here:
