Correcting authentication issue with password field in Xano for Weweb

In this meeting, the State Changer is discussing an issue with the authentication process. They are experiencing an error when running a sign-up function that is related to the password check. Another participant suggests looking into the password check function and identifies a problem with the order of variables. They make the necessary correction and test to see if the issue is resolved. They also discuss using a stop and debug function to further investigate the problem. The State Changer then brings up the possibility of changing the password field from a text field to a password field in the database. The participants explain that the password field should be of type password in the database, but the input can still be received as text. They clarify that the JWT (JavaScript web token) is not a representation of the password itself, but rather an encrypted and signed token used for authentication. Finally, they discuss the need to redo the implementation or find a different solution.
