In this video, we'll be dealing with another security measure, which is hashing our user's passwords.
As you can see, we're currently storing the password as plain text in the database. This means anyone with access to the database can access any user's account.
So what we're going to do is hash the password before we store it in the database. This means no one, or even the authentication system itself, will know the true password.
