    Hello everyone,

    I am wondering what the best or a good way to keep passwords secure was. Currently I have password field in a users table but the passwords are text.
    SEMrush
    Is this a bad idea and if so what other alternatives are there?

    Thank you

    md5...

    Encrypt the password with md5 (php: md5() function)

    When someone try to log in, you simply read the form password and encrypt thar too. So:

    if ( md5($formpassword) === $database_stored_password ) {
       print 'successful login';
    }
    else {
      print 'YOU SUCK!!!';
    }
    Code (markup):
    Cheers,
