I am using the Password Recovery control in ASP.NET to build a page for those users who have forgotten their password and the email I receive as a response includes the password but it seems to be coded or something because I get characters like "{a]_w=&" or "T^cV{yy" and, of course, this is not the password I am testing with. Is this a provider's issue or am I doing something wrong?

Please note that I am not writing any line of code; I am using the Password Recovery Control which is an automated process made by ASP.NET. I am only setting the control's properties.

When you use our ASP.NET Providers Model, you add this entry to your Web.config file:

Code: Select all

Probably, you have set the passwordFormat attribute to "Hashed". Try using the "Clear" and "Encrypted" options. This issue was discussed here:
