    I have a wcf service. It is hosted on iis ,but everytime i call an endoint i get a popup login screen :

        Windows Security 

        The server localhost is asking for your username and password.

        That server also reports "localhost"

        Warning: Your username and password will be sent using basic authentication on a connection that isnt secure

    What is the user name and passwor required here , i havent provided any except for the App Pool , which is Integrated mode. 

    Also , how can i by pass all this as I just want to debug my endpoints ?

    You configured basic authentication in IIS.  Disable basic authentication in the authentication IIS setting.
