Gets or sets a value that indicates whether the request should follow redirection responses.
Assembly: System.Net (in System.Net.dll)
Set to true if you want the request to automatically follow HTTP redirection headers to the new location of the resource.
The Authorization header is cleared on auto-redirects and HttpWebRequest automatically tries to re-authenticate to the redirected location. In practice, this means that an application can't put custom authentication information into the Authorization header if it is possible to encounter redirection.
The property is supported by both the browser and the client HTTP stack.
