Not Solved [How To?] What encryption does myBB use for passwords?
#10
Not Solved

Unfortunately, the MyBB 1.8 series has a commitment to supporting PHP 5.2, which doesn't support any of the methods we'd be looking to move to (eg: BCrypt, or Argon). A future feature release will definitely update the algorithm, as well as improving the way that sessions work and we should see 2FA support for users as well as administrators.

if (PHP < 5.3) {
 use md5
}else{
 use proper encryption to keep the world safe
}
