What is Requests?

A Python HTTP client library called Requests is available. Due to its smooth translation of the HTTP protocol onto Python's object-oriented semantics, Requests is one of the most, if not the most, widely used Python library that is not included with Python. The data from the webpage can be scraped using the Requests library. You can obtain, post, delete, and update the data for the specified URL using requests. Cookies and sessions can be handled quite easily. With the use of authentication module support, security is also handled.
