  1. Very interesting! I think they should to it with more websites. But what if you forget your password and there’s no button saying “Forgot your password”

      

  2. That is actually quite interesting. The Hashing Function is a very good way to make sure that no one can get into your profile on “Insta-Thing”.Like he said, let’s hope that they make even more better solutions to this.
