// You can use password_verify function to match the password in database. $password is the real password in login form

<?php $password= "ABC7788"; $db_hashedpassword = "@asd@ ";

if (password_verify($password, $db_hashedpassword )) { echo "Correct password"; } else { echo "Incorrect password"; } ?>
