Site Security

Unless you use SSL, a user logs into Joomla sending his password in plain text across the network. A malicious user could take advantage of this vulnerability and can have access to the back-end.
This plugin is an alternative to SSL. It uses RSA to encrypt passwords or any other data you want in your component.
It is necessary to have the bcmath extension

Works with Signal Login, JTP Horizontal Login, PWC Login, Inline Login and vtj login modules.

For other Joomla extensions, like Alpha Registration, Community Builder, Core Design Login Module, Yoo Login, YJ Pop Login Module you can find plugins at

No need to set up. Just install it and install the required plugins.

Encrypt worked well until now, but recently I updated the PHP version of my site to 7.1 and now I'm no longer to log in.
Ease of use
It worked well when it used to work, but no longer.
Works great as described! Thank you!
Ease of use
Easy to use, but it takes some learning curve. Almost no documentation on the interface, so had to find it on developer website.
The documentation on the website is simple and easy to follow.
I used this to: I use it on a hobby site to enhance security without purchasing and installing SSL certificate.
Owner's reply: However, I must say that this plugin doesn´t substitute a certificate. If you are really concerned about security you have to use a certificate.

A must-have plugin

It works fine. I saw that it really encrypts password.
Ease of use
It may need some configuration know-how.
I used this to: Attackers are getting smarter; they steal username/password pairs from one site, and then try reusing them on more lucrative sites. --

Simple and Excellent

In both 2.5 and 3.x sites it works just fine. Uninstaller has some issue but nothing big. Extra layer of security really helps.
Ease of use
Installating is pretty straight forward.
When summer sets in and you want to work on joomla sites using wifi while sitting inthe sun, this is the component that keeps out sniffers that want to get at your login data.
I was often shocked how many providers do not offer encrypted connections - or at a much too steep price! With this extension, at least the Password is encrypted (or even more?). Thank you.

Even though this is no support forum, I might have a guess at why @rockett had troubles uninstalling: Uninstall the component, not the plugin! (plugin is uninstalled automatically) That should perhaps be mentioned more prominently after installation.

the good apps , I established for acquaintance.

but with removal there were problems - many files and it is a headache.

it would be possible to make the uninstall button also

Since I do not have a SSL certificate loaded for my site, I always logged on with in my mind: Password goes unencrypted over the network. And look what I found: An alternatieve encryption method. Using this, I finally after all these years made my login process quite a bit safer.

Thanks for this easy to install and easy to use extension. This one should everybody install who doesn't have SSL! Really!

Simple and efficient

Does what it says its author, without complications.

Very effective. recommended

Owner's reply: Hi, gnumax.
Thanks for the review and also for the article at webempresa.
It was you I guess.
Work with native Joomla forms and with many external login modules. You can try to make encrypted any form if fact, just check out docs.

Unfortunately does not support BT Login extension yet.

But anyway great way to protect passwords and SSL alternative.
Owner's reply: Hi, metaflow.
I still have integration with BT Login in my todo list.
