You can't, and you don't need to.

There are very few situations where you would ever need to know the plain-text password - primarily if you're using it to authenticate to a third-party system.

For 99% of applications, you never need to know the plain-text version of the stored password.

You don't, that's the whole idea.
Hashes are deliberately non-reversible, that's the whole point - nobody stores the password in a format that can be stolen.
You use the hashed value - you can store that and use it for your autologin.
