means the person in possession of a bill or note which is payable to bearer.

In simple terms, a “bearer” is someone or something that carries or holds something valuable, like a token or a key, allowing access to certain privileges or resources.

In the context of technology and security, a “bearer” often refers to a type of access token used in authentication. This token is like a special passcode or ticket that grants permission to access certain services, data, or resources. Imagine it as a secret code that you show at the entrance of a secure area to gain access.
