Password encryption is not working

I am using require ‘digest/sha1’ to encrypt my password and save into
database. During login it is showing the following error-

undefined local variable or method `encrypted_password’ for
#<Signin:0x992c990

code:

before_save :encrypt_password

def has_password?(submitted_password)
encrypted_password == encrypt(submitted_password)
end

private

 def encrypt_password
   self.salt = make_salt unless has_password?(password)
   self.encrypted_password = encrypt(password)
 end

 def encrypt(string)
   secure_hash("#{salt}--#{string}")
 end

 def make_salt
   secure_hash("#{Time.now.utc}--#{password}")
 end

 def secure_hash(string)
   Digest::SHA2.hexdigest(string)
 end

Please help me dis !

you are not declared ‘encrypted_password’’ variable. so first declared
that
variable in model and use it.

You have tried to access a method encrypted_password on the Signin
class. Either the signins table does not have a column of that name,
or you are calling encrypted_password on the wrong class type.

secure_hash("#{Time.now.utc}–#{password}")
