Hash a password with Bun

The Bun.password.hash() function provides a fast, built-in mechanism for securely hashing passwords in Bun. No third-party dependencies are required.

const password = "super-secure-pa$$word";

const hash = await Bun.password.hash(password);
// => $argon2id$v=19$m=65536,t=2,p=1$tFq+9AVr1bfPxQdh6E8DQRhEXg/M/...

By default this uses the Argon2id algorithm. Pass a second argument to Bun.hash.password() to use a different algorithm or configure the hashing parameters.

const password = "super-secure-pa$$word";

// use argon2 (default)
const argonHash = await Bun.password.hash(password, {
  memoryCost: 4, // memory usage in kibibytes
  timeCost: 3, // the number of iterations

Bun also implements the bcrypt algorithm. Specify algorithm: "bcrypt" to use it.

// use bcrypt
const bcryptHash = await Bun.password.hash(password, {
  algorithm: "bcrypt",
  cost: 4, // number between 4-31

To verify a password, use Bun.password.verify(). The algorithm and its parameters are stored in the hash itself, so there's no need to re-specify any configuration.

const password = "super-secure-pa$$word";
const hash = await Bun.password.hash(password);

const isMatch = await Bun.password.verify(password, hash);
// => true
