Hi people.

I'd like to use MySQL in my application - would be an easy way for me to store users.

But then I'd have MySQL credentials in my app, visible for everyone with a HEX editor, I'd suppose?

And even though that MySQL user will have low privileges, then still too much info would be accessible.

Is there a secure way to use MySQL, or would I have to make my own server app, as a relay?

Thank you :)

Probably not. I suppose you could keep it encrypted, but even that will not prevent some smart hacker from decrypting the password. There really is no bullet-proof way to save passwords, anywhere except in the human mind.


I supposed so as well. Guess I'll just have to stop being lazy and make that server.

Thank you.
