Encrypted Text field as a password

Hi all,


Hope you are all well. I have an encrypted field as password field and problem validating user's input in the query. Can anyone give me a pointer or what I should be doing before I compare user's entry with the value in the encrypted field.


I can think of decripting the value but would like to get a concrete direction from someone who has done it before please.




Similarly, you can’t use the encrypted fields in SOQL “where/order” clauses, formula fields, workflow rules, workflow field updates, approval process entry criteria, and approval step criteria.!/2008/06/encrypted-custom-fields.html
