Too Long; Didn't Read

Using Session Cookies Vs. JWT for Authentication, we can use either session or tokens. This blog will help you understand the difference between both the authentication methods used for user authentication. In token-based authentication, we use JWTs (JWTs) for authentication. When the client receives a token, it means that the user is authenticated to perform any activity using the client. When the user logs out, that session data is deleted from the database and the server memory. When a large number of users are accessing the application once, this might be an issue when the server uses the session memory to store user data.
