    In your fields editor, I noticed there is a ‘Password’ option under ‘WordPress Default Fields’ AND under ‘Extra Fields’.

    If I use the password option from ‘Extra fields’ it is saved with a meta key and allows plain text passwords to be saved in the wp_usermeta table.

    This seems confusing and undesirable. Why have both?

    Hello,
    Password field from Extra Field store date to usermeta table like other meta field. It doesn’t have any default functionality for WP password system. We introduce it, so that user can be able to use password field to integrate with other system by using hooks. Btw, this field might be removed in future version.

    Thanks.
