Fuel framework users have another option when it comes to user authentication management in their applications. Ando has released Warden, a package that manages logins, password hashing and user ACLs.

Warden is a user database authorization package for the FuelPHP framework that aims to fast track development by handling the work load of uthenticating user's. Built for performance, it comes with a ready-to-use user model and database install script.

The package uses bcrypt for password hashing and also provides features for forgotten passwords, password resets and "remember me" functionality. Installation is as simple as adding it to your "always_load" package list and setting up a few configuration options. Sample code for its features is included. You can get the latest version directly from github.
