Quickly and effortlessly hash texts using MD5, SHA-256, and Bcrypt algorithms with the help of this straightforward and efficient little, Electron-based application
Nowadays, if you want to check the integrity of a file or you want to encrypt text, you can effortlessly resort to one of the dozens of good online tools capable of getting the job done. However, if you want something arguably more secure, then you might want to go for something local, a software that runs exclusively on your computer.
Meet HashTag – your everyday text hasher
HashTag is a modern-looking yet remarkably simplistic Electron application that allows you to encrypt and decrypt text. Not only that, but the tool also allows you to verify if a hash is identical to a plain text message.
It can also keep a precise history of previous hashes, so you can save a bit of time during the whole development process. As far as to the number of supported algorithms, the application only has three of them: MD5, SHA-256, and Bcrypt.
Of course, this should prove to be sufficient for most users, as two of these algorithms are the ones still used by the large majority of users out there. However, if you’re looking for anything more, we’re afraid HashTag is just too simple for your needs.
Simplistic features set, even simpler GUI
Considering the app’s simple feature set, there’s no surprise that the GUI is quite basic. There are three main sections namely Hash, Verify, and Crypt.
The first section is where you can encrypt text using the aforementioned three algorithms, the second one allows you to verify is a hash is identical to a plain text message, and the last one is where you can find your hashing history.
Taking everything into account, HashTag is a modern, well-designed little application that allows you to effortlessly hash text. It’s easy to operate, very straightforward to use, and it looks rather nice.
We at AppsForMyPC have tested and used HashTag and it worked pretty smoothly 🙂 🙂
