Why are we using HttpFoundation package
I am taking the couse "Introduction to User Authentication in PHP" by Alena, and everything works and is fine.
BUT I think the course starts without telling why we are using the HttpFoundation package? Does it make the website safer or?
We are also using the custom function redirect(). why? and is redirect a part of the httpFoundation Package

As I recall redirect() is just a custom function that we can use to call on whenever we need to redirect the user to anywhere specific such as when we're logging in and out of the app.
