I have a new website

In the email, when I register a new user, it's missing the password:

enter image description here



It is a bug affecting 1.9. You can find details about it here: https://stackoverflow.com/a/31262786/1038727

Magento 1.9 version has problem to send password in emails. and not set var values under {{htmlescape var=$customer.password}}

There is one solution to send password in email

Open the core file or extend as you like AccountController.php, find the function createPostAction() on line 285 or find


just comment it like this

// $customer->cleanPasswordsValidationData();

also do it in other places as on line 809, 954

now it sends the password to customer new account email.

Other method

open or extend the custom model file


find the function

public function cleanPasswordsValidationData()
    $this->setData('password', null);
    $this->setData('password_confirmation', null);
    return $this;

comment out // $this->setData('password', null);

public function cleanPasswordsValidationData()
    // $this->setData('password', null);
    $this->setData('password_confirmation', null);
    return $this;

NB: It was fixed in, see the releases notes: http://devdocs.magento.com/guides/m1x/ce19-ee114/ce1.9_release-notes.html#ce19-1930 :

The new customer e-mail now includes the customer's password.

Another SE link talking about it as per Vaibhav suggestion: password in email confirmation of registration
