MembershipProvider.EnablePasswordRetrieval Property

Indicates whether the membership provider is configured to allow users to retrieve their passwords.

Namespace:  System.Web.Security
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)

public abstract bool EnablePasswordRetrieval { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the membership provider is configured to support password retrieval; otherwise, false. The default is false.

The EnablePasswordRetrieval property contains a Boolean value specified in the configuration file (Web.config) using the enablePasswordRetrieval attribute. The value indicates whether users can use the GetPassword method to retrieve their current password from the data source. This property is read-only.

If your custom membership provider supports hashed passwords, your GetPassword method implementation should return an exception if EnablePasswordRetrieval is set to true and the password format is set to Hashed. Hashed passwords cannot be retrieved.

For an example of a MembershipProvider implementation, see Implementing a Profile Provider.
