##Platform quirks##

####Android####

Pending the following PR to be merged and released to have this working: https://github.com/apache/cordova-android/pull/143

No additional set up is required. Implementation is based on providing custom handler for [WebViewClient.onReceivedHttpAuthRequest](http://developer.android.com/reference/android/webkit/WebViewClient.html#onReceivedHttpAuthRequest(android.webkit.WebView, android.webkit.HttpAuthHandler, java.lang.String, java.lang.String)) which is automatically triggered when it is necessary during navigation or sending XmlHttpRequests.

Credentials are NOT persisted between app sessions so you need to enter them once per application start.

InAppBrowser plugin is NOT currently supported.

####iOS####

Requires manually executing the following method before accessing protected space (navigation or XmlHttpRequests).

authDialog.authenticate(uri, /*optional*/ successCallback, /*optional*/ errorCallback, /*optional*/ userName, /*optional*/ password, /*optional*/ maxAttempts)

Credentials are automatically cached by UIWebView so you do NOT need to enter them every app start. In this case authDialog.authenticate is executed w/o showing any credentials pop-up dialog.

After authentication is you can do XmlHttpRequests or display protected space via window.location = 'some protected uri' or using InAppBrowser plugin.

####Windows####

On Windows Tablet/PC (Windows 8.0 and Windows 8.1) native authentication dialog works out of the box so this functionality is not required (skipped).

On Windows Phone 8.1 authentication dialog is automatically showed for XmlHttpRequests only, InAppBrowser plugin is NOT currently supported.

Plugin overrides default XmlHttpRequest via custom wrapper based on original one to automatically show credentials dialog when it is necessary. Credentials dialog is html based and does not support hardware back button.

Credentials are NOT persisted between app sessions so you need to enter them once per application start.

####Window Phone 8.0####

Plugins supports XmlHttpRequests and opening protected space in Cordova View. InAppBrowser plugin is NOT currently supported.

Plugin overrides default XmlHttpRequest via custom wrapper based on original one to automatically show credentials dialog when it is necessary. Credentials dialog is XAML-based (native) and correctly supports hardware back button.

Credentials are NOT persisted between app sessions so you need to enter them once per application start.

There is a known issue with XmlHttpRequest to secured sites: When request receives a response with status 401 and "WWW-Authenticate" header, the whole Javascript layer freezes. This makes this plugin and XHR unusable for accessing resources that requires authentication on WP8 devices. However WP8.1 is not affected by this issue.
