I wanna try my self as an experience.
I have a member join and member log-in wherein the pass word is encrypted in the database (MySQL)
Now let's say he forgot the password it too lazy to just open your email account for just getting the password recovery.
What I thought of is to only show the encrypted password since the admin level cannot see the username. I wanted to show the password the non-encrypted information on password which could be only accessed by customers.
