Verify data integrity
The main utility of MD5 these days is to verify the integrity of data or files during transmission. This could be files downloaded from the internet, copied across disk drives, etc. You can make sure that your file is not corrupted by computing the MD5 hash of the downloaded file and comparing this hash with the one listed on the website you downloaded the file from.
While no longer as viable because of the increase in computing speed since it's release, some applications still use MD5 to check passwords.
