Tool to decode / encode with MD4 automatically. The MD4 hash is the ancestor of the MD5, it maps a 32-character fingerprint to any data.

dCode is free and its tools are a valuable help in games, maths, geocaching, puzzles and problems to solve every day!

The MD4 uses non-linear functions whose purpose is to be non-reversible, so there is no decoding method.
However, it is conceivable (with sufficient time and computing power) to test all the possible words and compare their fingerprint with that sought.
Databases containing pre-computed MD4 hashes are called rainbow tables.
dCode uses a rainbow table (2 million passwords), if the desired MD4 is not present, then the decryption will fail.
The MD4 has been tested by researchers who found collisions (2 different chains that have the same footprint).
Example: hexadecimal values

Its use is not recommended today for password storage, even when using salt.
MD4 stands for Message Digest 4
