Where do I put the username & password for my REST request??

I know little about how to get and push data safely to a web database and can´t seem to figure out which courses to take here in the treehouse to learn this. I have my database web service that has a built in REST service. To access the database there is an authentication needed. So this goes in the http request? This means my password to manipulate the entire database is in the js file for all to see no?? How is this done safely? Any suggestions for courses or workshops?
