Hi All,

I have a login screen with username and password.

I always hear that the username and password shold be encoded and sent to server.

How do i encode from the client side and send the details to the server or have i unserstood the concept wrong

Thanks

No, you are correct, you should encrypt passwords if you are going to send them over the internet. To do that you use SSL, i.e. you use an https URL.
