I am completing an app that requires user authentication with a hashed password saved in the database.
I understand the principle of hashing a password and saving the hash of the password so that when a user logs on again the newly entered password is hashed again and then that is compared to previously saved hashed password.
I also understand that the hashed password cannot be de-hashed and so it is saved securely.
However, when a user wants to click "Remember Me" and expects his password to be saved so that he does not have to keep entering it, every time he logs in, how and where do we save that? Many Thanks for any assistance.
