u characters encountered while getting response in get request of python

Solution for u characters encountered while getting response in get request of python
is Given Below:

while calling the requests.get method in python, the response in json format shows every key value pair appended with u. Is it trying to mention this is UTF-8?

Also source had asked to add authorization code like “abcd” to be in headers while calling the get method, the response was received even without adding this authorization code. Not sure why this happens.

example to call this was-

import requests
url = “abcd.com”
response_1 = requests.get(url)
