Online MD5 Generator is a Free SEO Tool that can be used to encode passwords, credit cards numbers and other sensitive date into MySQL, Postgress or other databases.
PHP programmers, ASP programmers and anyone developing on MySQL, SQL, Postgress or similar should find this online tool an especially handy resource.
An MD5 hash is created by taking a string of any length and encoding it into a 128-bit fingerprint that can be used as a checksum to verify data integrity of files.
Because the MD5 hash algorithm always produces the same output for the same given input, users can compare a hash of the source file with a newly created hash of the destination file to check that it is intact and unmodified.
This tool provides a quick and easy way to encode an MD5 hash from a simple string of up to 256 characters in length.
It is important to note that an MD5 hash is NOT an encryption. It is simply a fingerprint of the given input. However, it is a one-way transaction and as such, it is almost impossible to reverse engineer an MD5 hash to retrieve the original string.
