[SOLVED] console.log(req) displays database data

Issue

I ran a console.log(req); to see what was there and found that the data from the DB is shown together with the session data

sessionStore: MySQLStore {
    . . .
    options: {
      host: 'localhost',
      user: 'root',
      password: '1324',
      database: 'dbso',
      endConnectionOnClose: true,
      clearExpired: true,
      checkExpirationInterval: 900000,
      expiration: 86400000,
      createDatabaseTable: true,
      connectionLimit: 1,
      charset: 'utf8mb4_bin',
      schema: [Object]
    }, . . .

I am working with express-mysql-session and express-session

app.use(session({
    secret: "sss",
    resave: false,
    saveUninitialized: false,
    store: new mySQLStore({ /*Database info*/ })
}));

My concern and doubt is how much I should worry about this, and if I should worry about it, how can I solve it?

Our site uses cookies to store user sessions.

The summary of my doubt is, can the req become viewable/obtainable from the user side?

No.

The request object is used to pass data between middleware and end point handlers. It is only visible on the server.
