hi all

I am using password() to crypt a user password online. but how do i decrypt a user password, when user forgot his/her password?

You don't - that's the point. You have to provide them with a way to reset their password, based on some other method of authentication. Traditionally this is done with mailing a user a password reset link, and having that link only available for a short period of time.
