We will stop supporting the MD5 algorithm in our platform on the 15th of August, 2024 and impacted merchants will have to switch to SHA.


Areas in which MD5 will no longer be available are the following:


  • Keeping up to date with technical security advancements.
  • Increasing the security for authentication and removing potential security breaches.
  • Secure and robust while being compatible with the existing algorithms in terms of the number of bits and representation size​
Keep posted on the latest updates in the  2Checkout Control Panel  and in this article for transitioning to the SHA algorithm.
