Where do I find the app credentials and how to use them in Basic Auth

Hi, Im just starting with Kinvey and trying to use the REST API to access the backend, when doing an authentication-less ping to Kinvey it works perfect but once I'm trying to do the "handshake" as described in I'm getting a Basic Auth popup window asking me for the credentials, I'm trying to pass the credentials as part of the Authorization header, I tried to build the Base64 encode string using appname combined with app secret but it looks like its incorrect.

please can you guide me on how to pass the app credentiales (where do I find those credentials?)

I found this note in the REST API and resolved my issue:

When using the App or Master secret with Basic Auth, use your App Key as the username, and the secret as the password.
