    Don't delude yourself into thinking that Base64 is an encryption standard, it's an encoding scheme and what you're doing isn't bad practice. It's extremely bad security.

    I know. Next time I'll try to make it more secure. I promise.

    @Skayo no don't try, just do it. And don't ever tell anyone that you store passwords unencrypted, even if it makes for a good joke here. Someone might put two and two together and figure out what sites you run etc etc...

    I think you are confused mate. Base64 is encoding not encryption. It is an encoding that takes place to standardise the content before it is being encrypted or hashed.

    @Skayo its so insanely easy to so bcrypt now, no reason to make it insecure

    base64 isn't secure enough. I use plain text.

    If someone ever find out who you are, just calm them down by telling them you use md5 and not base64.

    Here it's even better we actually save them in plain text in the legacy project. Typical PHP security level.

    To all of you: I don't have any public sites. I only have some test logins wich use Base64 and I'm the only one who is registered.

    I know a lot of ways to encrypt passwords but I am a bit lazy...

    @Skayo haha, not a valid reason. If your lazy just store them in clear text, it's the same thing.
