Change Hashed Password using ASP.Net Membership Provider

Hi all,

try this example to Change Hashed Password using ASP.Net Membership Provider

Since you are using Hashing, you can’t retrieve password back from database, so you must reset it before assigning new password like as shown here

string password = "pass@word";
MembershipUser mu = Membership.GetUser();
mu.ChangePassword(mu.ResetPassword(), password);

and In Web.Config File add Membership Configuration :

<membership defaultProvider="SqlMembershipProvider" userIsOnlineTimeWindow="15">
<add name="SqlMembershipProviderOther" type="SqlProviderOneShot.SqlMembershipProvider"
connectionStringName="ConnectionString" applicationName="/"
enablePasswordRetrieval="false" enablePasswordReset="true"
requiresUniqueEmail="true" passwordFormat="Hashed"
minRequiredNonalphanumericCharacters="0" writeExceptionsToEventLog="false"
minRequiredPasswordLength="1" passwordStrengthRegularExpression=""
passwordAttemptWindow="10" maxInvalidPasswordAttempts="8"/>

Hope this helps

Good Luck.
