In the AspNetSqlMembershipProvider

What is the use of enablePasswordRetrieval="false" ? Is it related to password visible to admin in administration ? or if it is false, it means, when any user click on forgot password, he/she won't be able to retrieve password ?

Hi,

This is part of membership provider, you can find more details about it here. In general this will throw exception if you try to retrieve password using membership provider GetPassword method. If you're using hashed password this option is irrelevant as hashed passwords can't be retrieved.

Hi, just one addition. If you set it in MonoX,( enablePasswordRetrieval="false" ), you will be able to reset your password in the PasswordRecovery.aspx page.

Regards.
