Welcome To ITSolutionsGuides,

Today Lets see How To Check Plain Text Matches Hashed Password In Laravel. Laravel uses Hasing technique for storing the passwords which is a one way hashing technique ie; it cannot be dehashed to the plain text. Since the passwords are stored in the Hashed format during the login attempt by the user we need to check the password entered by the user is correct or not by checking or matching with the Hashed password stored in the database. The password entered by the user will be a plain text format so we need to check or compare the plain text with the Hashed password. Laravel provides Hash::check() method to check the plain text and the Hashed password. Lets see how to use Hash::check() with a example,

Let's Start Coding

Lets create the PasswordController using the following artisan command,
php artisan make:controller PasswordController
In the controller we will check the plain text entered by the user matches the hashed password using the following syntax,


namespace App\Http\Controllers;
use Illuminate\Http\RedirectResponse;
use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Hash;
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Auth;
class PasswordController extends Controller
    public function update(Request $request): RedirectResponse
        $data = Auth::user()->password;
        if (Hash::check($request->current_password, $data)) {
        $user = Auth::user();
        $user->password = Hash::make($request->new_confirm_password);
      return redirect()->route('dashboard');
    } else {
        return redirect()->back();
