[Rj Quirit, Ushahidi] in the mobile platform, during signup, I encrypted the password using MD5 php function..

[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] @rj we don't encrypt the password till it gets to the API. We rely on SSL/HTTPS to encrypt communications with the api. When you authenticate with the API it returns a token we use for all requests after that
