What is a File Hash?

A file hash, often referred to simply as a "hash", is a string of characters generated from a file's content using a specific hashing algorithm. This hash represents the file's "fingerprint". Even a small change to the file will produce a vastly different hash, making it a powerful tool for verifying file integrity and detecting unauthorized alterations.

How Should You Use a File Hash?

File hashes are commonly used in various scenarios:

How Does File Hasher Work?

This online tool allows you to generate various hash values for your files without ever leaving your browser. Your files are processed locally on your device, ensuring privacy and security. To use:

  1. Drag and drop your files onto the designated area or click on it to select files from your device.
  2. Once the files are processed, their hash values for different algorithms will be displayed. You can click on the icon next to each hash value to copy it to your clipboard.

Note: The SHA-1 algorithm is marked with '**' to indicate that it's considered less secure for cryptographic purposes compared to the other algorithms listed.
