Fabric OS prior to 8.0.1 uses MD5 hash type for storing the local user passwords. Starting with Fabric OS 8.0.1, SHA256 and SHA512 hash types are also supported. Whenever you change the hash type, you will be prompted to change the password in the next log in. You can also use the manual option to manually trigger a password change immediately after the hash type configuration.
