With Hash Toolkit you can decrypt hashes into the original text. You also can generate hashes using different algorithms. Hashes are used for many applications like security, authentication and others.
A hash, or hash function is a function that can be used to convert data of any size to a much smaller size. It's like a fingerprint of the data.
The result of a hash function are called hash code, digest, hash value or simply hash.
If the data changes just a little bit, the resulting hash will change completely.
Until now it was very difficult to reconstruct data just from the hash value. Hash Toolkit has built a giant database of precomputed inputs and their corresponding hashes. With that database it is possible to reverse / decrypt / reconstruct a hash into it's initial form in super fast way.

In cryptography, a hash function is a algorithm that is mapping data of any size to a string of a fixed size. The input is called message or simply input string. The fixed-size string function output is known as the hash or the message digest. Hash functions used in cryptography have the following key properties:
