|Summary||14408: DSVGO - sending passwort in plain-text with an e-mail is no longer allowed|
|Description||If a user registers to continue the survey later, an e-mail will be sent to him. In this e-mail the user will find the password in plain text. You can also find the password in plain-text in the URL.|
According to the new DSVGO, the sending of passwords in plain-text with an e-mail is no longer allowed. That's why our data protection officer is getting on my roof.
How do you want to deal with this problem in the future?

|Same for "Create admin user" => we must use "Single password system"|
|dont call it password ;-)|
Else : in my opinion : must have a checkbox "Put complete link for reload" Y/N : N is better, but Y didn't update for other user.
My general global opinion : muts move whole register system to plugin/extension/module …
|dont call it password seems a good solution :)|
1.) Which section of the DSGVO / GDPR is forbidding passwords via E-Mail?
But even without DSGVO/GDPR sending passwords directly per E-Mail is not good practice.
Why? You assume that the email is reaching the recipient.
For Save / Resume I would recommend to show a precreate "Surveykey, Accesskey" (plus QRCode) and allow people to choose to let it send to them via E-Mail. Their choice.
Allow to not send a password via E-Mail. If you send a password via E-Mail, make it temporary or at least first sign forces change of password.

2. Admin email : https://bugs.limesurvey.org/view.php?id=14049
@adelphi_user, can you pinpoint the article in GDPR that stipulates that? I also know that it is not recommended, but still "acceptable".
Nevertheless, we are aware of the issue you describe and we will change it in the upcoming version; I hope :)
This issue is about sending the token key and participation link when a user registers for a survey. We all agree this is acceptable because the password is a single-use random password.
Discussion has swerved to other problems with password - please discuss that in the particular issues, instead - thank you.
