HTTP Basic Auth (or Basic access authentication) is a widely used protocol for simple username/password authentication, for example, when your web browsers prompts you for credentials:
Example of Basic auth in Safari
Paw natively supports HTTP Basic Auth via the HTTP Basic Auth Dynamic Value, which generates the
Authorization header from the credentials you provide.
Warning! Please note that when using Basic auth, your password is being sent to the server, and therefore this should be considered safe only over HTTPS.
