We store hashed passwords

Passwords remain the primary means for online authentication and must be protected when stored on a server. Encryption is a two-way function; what is encrypted can be decrypted with the proper key. Hashing, however, is a one-way function that scrambles plain text to produce a unique message digest. With a properly designed algorithm, there is no way to reverse the hashing process to reveal the original password. An attacker (or even our own programmers) who may access to hashed passwords cannot reverse hashed password to original one.

AutoCount Cloud Payroll has learned from other companies mistakes and store every password in Hash Format.
