    Is my PHP code secure?

    I'm using PHP and want to make an encryption method for storing a random value in the user's cookie as a method of authentication so they don't need to log back in every time they visit the site. Would the code below be secure?

    $salt = "some random characters I made up";
    hash('sha256', $salt.microtime(true).mt_rand(10000000,99999999));
