Use the Below Code in your Custom Module to Set, Unset Session

protected $_checkoutSession;
public function __construct(
    \Magento\Backend\Block\Template\Context $context,        

    \Magento\Checkout\Model\Session $checkoutSession,
    array $data = []

    $this->_checkoutSession = $checkoutSession;
    parent::__construct($context, $data);

public function getCheckoutSession() 
    return $this->_checkoutSession;

Now, we set and get session from template (.phtml) file.

echo $block->getCheckoutSession()->getTestData() . '<br />'; // output: 123

Unset session


From checkout session, we can fetch quote information.

// get checkout session data
echo $block->getCheckoutSession()->getQuoteId();
