I'm trying to set up a simple token based authentication and have so far been able to create the tokens and save them to local storage, but when I try to create an interceptor that includes the token to every request sent I get a strange error:

Error: [$injector:unpr] http://errors.angularjs.org/1.6.6/$injector/unpr?p0=%24localStorageProvider%20%3C-%20%24localStorage%20%3C-%20%24http%20%3C-%20%24templateRequest%20%3C-%20%24route

Here is the code that I use for the Interceptor

var app = angular.module('Jäsentietopalvelu', ["ngRoute"])

.config(['$routeProvider', '$locationProvider', '$httpProvider', function($routeProvider, $locationProvider, $httpProvider){
                .when('/', {
                templateUrl: 'login.html',
                .when('/testi', {
                templateUrl: 'testi.html',
                .when('/logout', {
                templateUrl: 'logout.html',
                .when('/login', {
                templateUrl: 'login.html',

        $httpProvider.interceptors.push(['$q','$location','$localStorage', function($q,$location, $localStorage){
                return {
                        'request': function (config){
                                config.headers = config.headers || {};
                                if ($localStorage.accessToken) {
                                        config.headers.Authorization = 'bearer ' + $localStorage.accessToken;
                                return config;
                        'responseError': function(response){
                                if(response.status === 401 || response.status === 403) {
                                return $q.reject(response);

In what way should I create the interceptor so that it works properly? Is it supposed to be in module.config or somewhere else?

you are pushing $localStorage into your $httpProvider, while it's not injected into your config. Change config so it has it: .config(['$localStorage', ... , function($localStorage, ... – Aleksey Solovey
I added $localStorage to .config, and now I'm getting error like Error: [$injector:modulerr] errors.angularjs.org/1.6.6/$injector/… – nyoatype
That's a good sign, your first error was resolved, now you have the second one. Your module needs to have dependency injection to ngStorate. 31piy already posted an answer – Aleksey Solovey

This error means that AngularJS could not find one of the required dependency in your project, named $localStorage.

I suspect you are using ngStorage in your code to deal with Local Storage in the browser using AngularJS.

First, you need to ensure that you've installed it as a dependency in the project. Follow these installation methods to get it in your project.

After installation, you need to ensure to declare it as a dependency in your angular module:

var app = angular.module('Jäsentietopalvelu', ["ngRoute", "ngStorage"]);

Then only you can use its components in your project.

I installed ngStorage using npm. After that I also tried to use the link to install the module but in both cases I got the following error. Error: [$injector:modulerr] errors.angularjs.org/1.6.6/$injector/… – nyoatype
@nyoatype -- You are loading the script for ngStorage before loading AngularJS. Moveit after AngularJS' script tag. – 31piy
