That this is provided under the Fourth Amendment of unreasonable searches because without this an officer would not need a warrant and could come into the home anytime and takes whatever they please without the person saying otherwise.

Facts included in an affidavit must be attributed to their source. The court must determine the credibility of the information, and cannot do so without knowing from where it came. If using informants, names can be withheld, but information about their credibility and the basis of their knowledge is important.
