Use our free and unlimited MD5 Encryption tool to generate plain text strings into a MD5 Generated Hash.
MD5 stands for message-digest algorithm which was originally developed to help keep passwords secure on the web. MD5 was originally created in 1992 by Ron Rivest for MIT.
No, MD5 hashing is not considered safe anymore as over 15 million different hashes have been cracked; meaning these encrypted values can be deciphered within seconds.
MD5 encryption always returns the same value for every use case and is one of the primary reasons it is now considered unsafe. This means that the string of 'text', will always return the MD5 encrypted value of '098F6BCD4621D373CADE4E832627B4F6'. If you are storing passwords, we recommend encrypting these password securely using either PBKDF2, bcrypt or scrypt.
