      Actually it's not supposed to be possible, but I've heard of some tools that can try to enumerate there passwords for you. Check around on the net.

        How can be possible! The encryption method do not allow you to see the password. Theres no deencryption method only encryption and the encryption of two strings will be equals if the strings are right as well

            I know about this! But like I said! That program only compare two encrypted strings. If you have a strong password with more than 12 characters you will take weeks to see the results

              As I said, it's not SUPPOSED to be possible, however, there are programs that will let you do this, and if the password's your users are using are not complex, this might take shorter than you think on a fast computer.
