hi you can try my code

$pwdObj = $this->_objectManager->get('Magento\Framework\Encryption\EncryptorInterface');
$string = 'qwer@123';
echo $pwdObj->getHash($string,true);

My Try

Custom Controller To Print Password Hash:

for testing I alter protected method to public, createPasswordHash in Magento\Customer\Model\AccountManagement


namespace Vendor\Helloworld\Controller\Index;

class Index extends \Magento\Framework\App\Action\Action

    protected $resultPageFactory;
    protected $_account;

     * Constructor
     * @param \Magento\Framework\App\Action\Context  $context
     * @param \Magento\Framework\View\Result\PageFactory $resultPageFactory
    public function __construct(
        \Magento\Framework\App\Action\Context $context,
        \Magento\Framework\View\Result\PageFactory $resultPageFactory,
        \Magento\Customer\Model\AccountManagement $account

    ) {
        $this->resultPageFactory = $resultPageFactory;

     * Execute view action
     * @return \Magento\Framework\Controller\ResultInterface
    public function execute()
        echo $this->_account->createPasswordHash($password);
        // return $this->resultPageFactory->create();

it produce


when I update newly generated database hash value, it allow to login by password qwer@123.
