The concept here is similar to the one I submitted here, Recommended: Strong Passwords Technique.

https://www.cybrary.it/0p3n/recommended-strong-passwords-technique/The only difference is that this one is for Android. In Android, we must install the app capable of calculating the hash value of text or file.This app is the Hash Droid by Hobby Onehttps://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.hobbyone.HashDroid&hl=enHash Droid is a free utility to calculate a hash from a given text or from a file stored on the device.In this application, the available hash functions are : Adler-32, CRC-32, Haval-128, MD2, MD4, MD5, RIPEMD-128, RIPEMD-160, SHA-1, SHA-256, SHA-384, SHA-512, Tiger and Whirlpool. The calculated hash can be copied to the clipboard to be reused elsewhere.Example procedures to log-in to my Cybrary account in my Android device
