"Don't encrypt passwords" is the simple answer.

Right, a 5.
OP could be very much confused, might think you are talking about storing of the passwords. Right thing would be saying something like "Use cryptography, but not encryption" ;-)

Solution 2

Before saving your password to database, use some of the encryption algorithm.
And while retrieving the password back use decryption algorithm. Save your key on some other place.
Refer[^] for encryption decryption.
