I'm managing a smaller project that uses Drupal 8.
The site allows for users to register for an account. There is a simple feature which sends the user a welcome email along with their 'login details' so that they can keep it for future reference.
I was told that it would be impossible to send out the actual password in that email and it would only be possible to send out some thing like: Password: Password chosen during signup.
This is due to Drupal encrypting its data and for some reason sending out a decrypted password in an auto-generated email would not work.
Any second opinions on this? How would you solve this?
