What is Middleware in Laravel?

A middleware acts as a technique or method of filtering the HTTP requests. If we take an example, there is a middleware in Laravel that verifies whether a user is authenticated or not. If not, it will redirect the unauthenticated user back to the login page.
It is known as a middleware because it is responsible for the interaction between a request and a response.

We can create our own middleware by running the following command:

php artisan make:middleware <middleware_name>

Here, you have to replace <middleware_name> with the name of your middleware. For example:

php artisan make:middleware AuthenticateUser

We will study further details about Middleware in the next article.
