Password in jos_users after FB registration

9 years 4 months ago #167019 by belldandy
Hi all!

Is it possible the FB Connect plugin to encode the password from the user's real Facebook password? Because the plugin generates the password from the FB app id and the user id, and it's impossible to a user that registered via the FB account to use the CB Login module using his FB username and password.

Does anybody knows a solution for this? Does FB returns the users's real password (frankly, I doubt it...)

Thank you in advance!

It's absolutely impossible to get a users Facebook password; in addition to that against Facebook policy. The password given is randomly generated, no work around. They can change their password after login if they like.
