SHA1 Hash Generator

What is SHA1

SHA-1 stands for Secure Hash Algorithm 1. It is a cryptographic hash function that is an improved version of SHA-0. Because there were certain flaws in SHA-0, the National Security Agency of the United States considered making some changes to it.

It is a cryptographically broken algorithm that takes an input and produces a message digest of 160-bit which is equivalent to 20-bytes. The SHA-1 hash is composed of 40 hexadecimal characters. In the beginning, it was considered secure as compared to other available hash algorithms, but in around 2005, most organizations replaced it with other more secure hash algorithms.

Calculating the SHA1 hash of a string is not something that one can be done manually because hashing a string is a very complex and tedious process. That is where our online SHA1 hash generator tool comes into play.

We have so many methods and tools available to calculate the SHA1 hash of a string, but not every online tool gives an accurate result and that is why we have created this online SHA1 Hash Generator tool. It is a very simple and easy-to-use tool. Most important thing is that it is beginner-friendly.

How to Use SHA1 Hash Generator Tool

  • As you can see, we have 2 input fields and 1 dropdown.
  • On the left-hand side, enter a text in the input field.
  • On the right-hand side, select SHA1 from the dropdown. As soon as you perform the selection, the tool will generate the SHA1 hash of the text and display the result.
