Hi @praneshJ 

 

Yes, you can update the password using the below expression:

 

Patch(Contacts,LookUp(Contacts,Email = "myemailaddress@gmail.com"),{'New Password Input':"NewPassword"})

 

This will trigger an action in the backend and will change the password. The new password might take a few minutes to reflect.

 

 

Hope this Helps!

Hello,

 

Thanks for the solution.👍

 

Now want to encrypt the password while updating and use the same password while next time login.

I am not sure what are the functions to encrypt and decrypt the password in power apps.

 

Help will be really appreciated!!!!
