BackendlessUser.getPassword returns null.

I am trying to implement change password feature for user (already logged in user),

As per “feature-81-changing-users-password-via-api-if-user-can-login” article of yours, we have to make two API calls to just change password.
Rather if we can get password by just calling method getPassword(), we can avoid two calls.Please reply.

You cannot retrieve user’s current password. Passwords are hashed in the database and there is no way to know what the current password is - it is never returned by the backend to the client.

Is there an alternative ???
