In simple terms, it's establishing a connection between you and the server, and then (I'm not 100% sure on how the client works) the client sends a token to verify that you are actually you. Once it does, it means you're authenticated and can connect under your account.

 

If, for some reason, the authentication would fail, you wouldn't be able to connect. I would assume it's to make sure no one can give false credentials to log in on another account without a password.

hello colleague, because many times this happens when you do not have enough FPS, ie lack of internet, on occasion I had the same thing but acquired more megas to the internet company and already solved. I hope it serves cordial greetings.
