GET USER PROPERTIES no longer returns the encrypted password in the password parameter. Starting with version 6.0.2, an empty string is always returned in this parameter.

This is to increase the security of 4D and prevent hackers from reverse engineering our password system. If you are looking for a way to manage passwords, read Chapter 9 "Managing Password Access" in the 4D Design Reference that explains how the Administrator can export and import the entire Users & Groups system from one database structure to another.
