Hi folks This question is not about nor related to MDL Forums. Q.Can a Website admin view user passwords? From my limited knowledge, I am under the impression (through use of Joomla as an Admin) that they can see your e-mail address and change it. They can also change your password but not view your original password (a manual re-set). The website in question is not available to the general public and I discovered this little quirk purely by accident as I'd set up a bogus e-mail (email@example.com). When I changed my password (which I forgot to write down) I had to ask the Admin to reset my password as I'd forgotten what I'd changed it to and the e-mail wasn't a valid one so i couldn't use the reset password link on the site. I was quite surprised when, instead of a new password, I was given my password. I have Googled this question but could only find reference to a website called troopmaster which apparently can, or could, view user passwords.
