I've moved my WordPress site onto a https server, but now I'm wondering if I still need to manually encrypt the login credentials for my remote login.
Is the default login encrypted before it is sent? Everything I've read, code included, is all plain text which is really bad for http sites.
In my other projects we used something like an md5 hash to encrypt the password before sending it. But I don't have that project and I don't know if WP is storing plain text passwords or hashed. So I'd rather use existing WP login code if it's available or an example code of how to encrypt it before sending it would help.
PS I'm logging in via a remote application.
PSS I've also seen the other posts and this is not a duplicate.
