Normally, we download and install new programs and software for our different devices. Often, we do it from non-official sites. In theory, it may not seem dangerous, but it does have some risk because the application in question could have been modified. It may be that someone has included some kind of virus or trojan. Everyone knows the saying "prevention is better than cure", so we bring this tool to generate the MD5 online.
This is an algorithm that creates a file associated with a particular code. Thus, when a file is downloaded, the code that was generated by the algorithm, also known as hash is discharged with him.
There are programs that allow us to analyze the downloaded file and read it. This way we can go to the original developer's website and look for the original MD5 code. When we have both, we can compare and see if they match or not and decide if it is reliable.
Besides to be sure of the reliability of an external installer, we can use the MD5 algorithm for other things. One of the most interesting is to create our MD5 code for a file that is ours. If we create it, anyone who downloads it can check the integrity of the file. Thanks to our tool, we can create our file MD5 hash of an easy, fast and free.
