Does EncryptPassword inside Users API do an encryption?
Question

See title. The documentation and name of the action says it "Returns the encrypted password" but from Community posts it seems the password is stored as a hash and not decryptable.

Does the action perform a hash or an encryption? If it is an encryption, what algorithm does it use?

 Awesome. I must remind myself to RTFSC *facepalms*.

I do wonder why the action is EncryptPassword and not HashPassword though.
