Password encryption utility helps developers and webmasters to encrypt passwords with standard encryption algorithms. The algorithms used are two-way encryption, which means they can be decoded later with the same algorithm. The passwords encrypted with this utility are useful for storing in databases, etc.
Passwords are a sensitive thing and should not be stored as it is. They should be encrypted first before saving in databases. So that whenever they are needed to be cross-checked, it can be done within a program. The online password encryption or text encryption utility utilizes the power of the famous encryption algorithms and encodes a given text with five most popular encryption techniques.
The encryption techniques most commonly used are MD5 encoding, Base64 encoding, UUencode, SHA1, and Standard DES encryption. Some of these are non-decodable such as MD5 encoding is one-way encryption and is most commonly used for storing passwords in database.
All the above encryptions are applied to the given text separately and then shown as a result.
