Hash Generator lets you generate the hash value (message digest) for any text message using hashing algorithms such as MD5 & SHA-1.
MD5 is a secure hash algorithm. It takes a string as input, and produces a 128-bit number, the hash. The same string always produces the same hash, but given a hash, it is not generally possible to determine the original string. Secure hash algorithms are useful for protecting passwords and ensuring data integrity.
This hash generator converts your sensitive data like passwords to a SHA-1 hash.
The input string encoding is expected to be in UTF-8. Different encoding will result in different hash values. Unicode is considered best practices.
