MD5 Calculator is an online tool to compute the MD5 checksum of a string or file locally on your browser. This hash can be used to verify the integrity of the data during transmission. You can provide the expected hash and compare the calculated md5sum with it. The md5hash can be generated in Base64 or Hex formats. The input can be provided in Plain Text, Base64 or as a binary file which you can select from your machine. Hit the Calculate button to generate and check the MD5 value
Your file or data will NOT be uploaded. All processing takes place locally inside your browser.
MD5 is a widely used algorithm for two primary purposes:-
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.
