Encrypted password returned in forgot password email.

I have recently replaced the forgotpassword.php page with an updated version as it never worked (was stuck in a loop where when you submitted the page it would return to the forgot password page and an email was never sent). So I created a new set of security assist pages and simply replaced that old page with the new one. The loop is now resolved it appears and the email is sent properly however in the email, the encrypted password is displayed rather than the unencrypted version.

Is there an easy solution to this or do I need to rip out the old files and replace with new ones? Thanks in advance!

sounds like when you created the new pages, you did not select to have the password encrypted in the security assist wizard.

make sure you have the new 1.1.0 update to Data Bridge installed, then rerun the security assist wizard to create the pages, and make sure the password is set to be encrypted.
