I know binding the password should not be done due to the password being in the RAM is bad practice.
Now everything I want is to let the database tell me if there even is a password (I'm NOT loading the password/password hash) so I can set the Variable I was planning on binding to some garbage text (eg. ********) so the user is visually informed there has been a password set before.
What is a way I can archive this?
BTW: What is best practice to use/get the actual password the user entered to store it? Your examples and documentation on this topic are - as often - paper thin.
Thanks a lot
