Pulling data from a list in SharePoint 2013 via REST


I'm trying to build a mobile service in Azure (C#) that pushes data onto client apps. The data I need to pull is from a sharepoint site which I'm not very familiar with nor do I have access to.

I've read a couple of resources online but whenever I try to quickly visit the list via _api/web/lists/ or _api/web/lists/getbytitle('pages'), I get an authentication prompt.

Is this the default behavior or hsa the rest api been switched off? Do I need to build a sharepoint app to generate an oauth token and then access the list?

I'm basically clueless so any piece of information would be greatly appreciated.
