    Hi Team,

    we are using custom page for forgot password, once user clicks on forgot password link user will be asked to key in the secret question answer. problem is regardless of of user key in correct secret question answer or not we receive email for reset password. we should not be receiving the mail if  secret question answer is wrong

    How can we check for user key in correct secret question answer? we are failed to check by doing database call as secret question answer is encrypted because it was saved by calling ChangePasswordQuestionAndAnswer() method.

    in our web config we have

    we use this method for check secret question answer
    //string strTempPwd = obj.ResetPassword(txtAnswer.Text);

    Hi Thavarajah,

    If RequiresQuestionAndAnswer is false what is the answer you are passing to ResetPassword method?
    By default RequireQuestionAndAnswer gets a value indicating whether the default membership provider requires the user to answer a password question for password reset and retrieval.

    All the best,
