User-token vs. cookie

Hello backendless team and community,
I’m looking for some guidance on the question whether to use user-token based authentication vs. cookie-based. The only advantage of cookie-based I know is, that I don’t have to pass a user-token with every request to the backend. At least from the browser.
Are there more differences?

Hi Klaas,

This is the main difference - the user-token header does not need to be passed.
