Have you ever tried to download a file from the internet and see some unintelligible characters beside it? This character is called the checksum. The checksum can be used in many ways to verify data integrity, but for the layman, it is valuable to check that the files you are downloading have not been modified or tampered with by another source. It allows you to verify the integrity of your file by checking its MD5, SHA-1, SHA-256, and SHA-512 signatures. This program is user-friendly, both computer novice and experts can use it without hassles.
To use this program, open a file you would like to check using the Windows Explorer or by using the drag and drop mouse gesture. After that, the program automatically displays the MD5, SHA-1, SHA-256 and SHA-512 checksums of the file. It then allows the user to insert another checksum to compare the two files.
This portable program presents an easy way to verify the checksum values of files.
