Retrieving the password from the "Password on file"

Hello,

Is it possible to retrieve the password from the "password" text field that says Password on file below that field? Kindly let me know.

Cheers.

Rollbase does not store passwords but salted hash instead. That greatly increase security.

Hi Iram,

Unfortunately that's not possible. Rollbase encrypts passwords and hides them from our view. You can only set a new password.

You could try decrypting the password if you could retrieve it and know the encryption method. But that could take 1000 years.
