WP-Members
[resolved] User Passwords Not Sent to ADMIN (2 posts)

    I love this plugin, but I do have a question. I'm the administrator and I want to know can WP Members plugin send me all users' passwords when they register? Even when I exported the users' data, I get everything else but the password field is empty.

    I know that if someone forgets their password, they can reset it. But in the organization I work for, I'll get someone asking me to email me their password so they don't have to reset it. Is there a way to program the plug-in to give me the users passwords?

    As a matter of security, it is not a good practice to allow plain text password access. That is why WordPress encrypts the password, and that is why WP-Members does not email the password to anyone other than the user. It's not included in user export because it is encrypted in the database.
