We all have heard of MD5 encryption and it is one of the best encryptors so far. In this Blog, we will learn how to convert a String to MD5 Hashes in Android.
MD5 stands for ‘Message Digest algorithm 5’.
The MD5 algorithm is used as a cryptographic hash function or a file fingerprint. Often used to encrypt
Often used to encrypt the password in databases, MD5 can also generate a fingerprint file to ensure that a file is the same after a transfer for example.
MD5 means a 128-bit encryption algorithm, generating a 32-character hexadecimal hash.
Although MD5 was initially designed to be used as a cryptographic hash function, it has been found to suffer from extensive vulnerabilities. It can still be used as a checksum to verify data integrity, but only against unintentional corruption.
It can still be used as a checksum to verify data integrity, but only against unintentional corruption.
Like most hash functions, MD5 is neither encryption nor encoding. It can be cracked by brute-force attack and suffers from extensive vulnerabilities.
With all this being said, let’s have a look at what you exactly need to do to convert a String to MD5 Hashes. This indeed is very easy.
Now Let’s have a look at the code:
You can Definitely use StringBuilder class to create the returned String.

The “0xFF & ” is unusefull because messageDigest is a byte array
Thanks for this wonderful and correct observation.
