Get user password in post login rules

Is it possible to retreive user password in a auth0 rule?

function (user, context, callback) 

As rules receive the user, context objects neither of them have the password.

Should the password be be set in the database connection and retrieved in the rule?

I can’t say for 100% certainly, but I would wager on Auth0’s culture, and obviously security reasons, that you can’t do that. Why are you trying to obtain their password?
