With this Plugin you can change the password hash algorithm for your users. Further, you can allow login with only the e-mail address in the username field. This will protect weak passwords from your users (precisely their hashes), if they get stolen by a hacker.
As soon as you choose another hash algorithm as the Joomla! default one, the user is switched to the new hash.

As of Joomla! 3.2 there is no need for this plugin anymore. So the development is stopped. I will only publish a 2.1 version with migration option to the new standard Joomla! hash in the future.

Really useful extension, easy to use and simple, providing SHA-512 hashing algorithm with salt.

version 1.2 also provide option to use only email for login, or only username or both.

Support resolved my issue within few hours, I am impressed.

Great extension!
