Hash Pass allows a user to input a password or any text and generate a hash from it.

Generally a secure password is hard to remember so users tend to opt for easy to remember passwords. These passwords are also easy to crack. This app aims to address that by allowing the user to use hashes in place of their passwords on various sites.

Example: a user may have a password such as "computer" (a bad one) that would be easily cracked in a dictionary attack.

Where as the md5 hash generated from computer is
df53ca268240ca76670c8566ee54568a which is not easy to guess or dictionary attack.

There are currently four algorithms available in the app. MD5 , SHA1 , SHA256 & SHA512.

This allows the user to use the same password for four different sites and a different hash for each.

For your banking or email you could use the SHA512 hash of your chosen password . In the computer example the hash is

922d076069b1df893fc010b7a6d2aa55c7c4c5d194f163394a4c864de5754131c17bfa94ac1667f56b5181cc7eca5dc3a09444caee6eecf16114926bb29f7e79

The hashes are automatically copied to the clipboard for convenience. This allows you to easily paste it into an app.

If a database is compromised which is insecurely storing the passwords and your passwords (your generated hash) was obtained . The other three sites (with different hashing algorithms) would be safe.

Using hashes as passwords also makes an attack more computationally expensive as each string (sequence of characters) has to be hashed first before submitting it as the password. Also that factor is multiplied by 4 as the attacker does not know which algorithm you may have chosen.

You could also paste the output of the initial hash as the input with different functions for more options. Just remember the algorithms and the order you chose if you do.

This app respects users privacy and no data is recorded about the user. The permissions are required to serve the ads.

    Love it. Wrote similar script for my Linux box w/default 16 char limit to deal with site limits but with the option to specify length. This people, is a great way to deal w/psswds w/out going nuts. The ability to generate 4 different STRONG psswd's based on 1 identical string & even prioritize them based on algorithm! Great & THX! FWIW; I think writing a little script or one-liner using these te

    Where this app fails is that most sites have a limit on how many characters your password can be (length). Crypt algorithm would output fewer characters, but it is realatively easy to crack using brute force :/
