Once you log in to salesforce, you will get a session ID. This session id is like a token which proves you are already authenticated.
Hence, every next request should have this session id, so you will not be asked for your credentials everytime.

Hi,

 

A session ID is a unique number that a Web site's server assigns a specific user for the duration of that user's visit .

 

The session ID can be stored as a cookie, form field, or URL (Some Web servers generate session IDs by simply incrementing static numbers. However, most servers use algorithms that involve more complex methods, such as factoring in the date and time of the visit along with othervariables defined by the server administrator.

 

and if you have any more questions please feel to contact me on support@groundwireconsulting.com
