Lost a password? The password itself is not available to either the programmer, or any other user in the system. Because security has been designed to span across applications, and networks, it would constitute a major security flaw for one user to be able to find out the password for another user. This means effectively, that if a password is forgotten, there is no way to retrieve it. If the password can't be remembered, then the user will have to be deleted and re-added.
