XF 2.1 Is it possible to encrypt password clientside before passing it into Auth API ?


New member

I'm developing a system to add ability for people to link their forum accounts to the game by using the API, specifically the Auth endpoint. However, the API takes plain password which is bad.

Is there another way to authenticate users without having to worry about sending passwords in plain text from client to server to Xenforo ? Or maybe encrypt it before sending ? If so, whats the encryption algorithm ?

Thank you!
