Default

By default, passwords are hashed in the system. Since hashing is a one-way process, it can't be reversed. So, you get a random password in the password recovery control.

If you set the passwordFormat to clear, you also need to set enablePasswordRetrieval to true. With a False setting (the default) you still get a random password.
