The Goravel facades.Hash provides secure Argon2id and Bcrypt hashing for storing user passwords. If you are using one of the Goravel application starter kits, Argon2id will be used for registration and authentication by default.


The default hashing driver for your application is configured in your application's config/hashing.go configuration file. There are currently several supported drivers: Argon2id and Bcrypt.

Basic Usage

Hashing Passwords

You may hash a password by calling the Make method on the facades.Hash:

password, err := facades.Hash.Make(password)

Verifying That A Password Matches A Hash

The Check method provided by the Hash facade allows you to verify that a given plain-text string corresponds to a given hash:

if facades.Hash.Check('plain-text', hashedPassword) {
    // The passwords match...

Determining If A Password Needs To Be Rehashed

The NeedsRehash method provided by the Hash facade allows you to determine if the work factor used by the hasher has changed since the password was hashed. Some applications choose to perform this check during the application's authentication process:

if facades.Hash.NeedsRehash(hashed) {
     hashed = facades.Hash.Make('plain-text');
