Hash Me! is a lightweight and portable piece of software that enables you to create hashed passwords by following a simple set of user-defined rules.
Since installation is not required, you can drop the program files in any part of the hard disk and just click the executable to run.
There is also the possibility to save Hash Me! to a USB flash disk or other removable storage unit, in order to directly launch it on any PC without having to install anything beforehand.
An important aspect worth taking into account is that the Windows registry and Start menu do not get updated with new entries, and no extra files are created on the disk without permission, so no traces are left behind after the app's removal.
Create templates with customized settings
Hash Me! supports templates that you can apply each time you want to generate hash passwords. As far as configuration goes, it is necessary to input the value and salt, specify the salt position and optionally add it to the hash, as well as pick the hash algorithm (MD5, SHA1, SHA256, SHA384, SHA512), encryption format and types.
Once a template it created, all you have to do is input the text string or point out the file you want hashed (TXT or CSV) and click a button to generate the hash code (for text strings) and output file with the hash code (for files).
Evaluation and conclusion
The app does not put a strain on PC performance, since it runs on low CPU and RAM. There were no kind of issues in our tests, as it did not hang, crash or pop up error messages. Hash codes and text files are instantly created.
All in all, Hash Me! offers a simple solution to creating templates with the necessary configuration for generating hash codes and files, and it can be easily figured out.
