What is this Okhttp Interceptor?

What is this Okhttp Interceptor?

Basically, Interceptors are like security guards at the airport. They decide our passage and stop.

It has two different tasks. These;

  • It’s used to log for a network call using the interceptor.
  • It’s used to cache network calls.

There are two different interceptors.

  • Application Interceptors are added between these interceptors Application code and Okhttp Core Library. We use it with addInterceptor().
  • Network Interceptor, these interceptors are added between OkHttp Core Library and Server. We can add them to OkHttpClient using addNetworkInterceptor().
