Why is the login method GET in the documentation?

I’m building an app with the REST API and I noticed that the login API call makes a GET request with the username and password url encoded in the url. This is one of the first rules you learn in IT that a get request should not contain any secure data. I tried to use a POST request and this works fine. It would be safer to change the documentation to POST.

That would be good to change. Would you be willed to open a PR to the docs repo (GitHub - parse-community/docs: Parse Platform docs) with the suggested change?

The PR is still pending to merge. Seems like nobody is maintaining the REST API.
I see a lot of open PRs on the repo as well.
