    New User Password is Emailed to User in plain text - bad practice

    Hello,

    I have the following ticked under classipress settings:

    "Let the user create their own password vs a system generated one"


    When a new user registers they are emailed their password which is not safe and bad practice.

    How do we turn this vulnerability off?

    Many Thanks
