How to convert SecureString to String while getting Secured Credentials in UiPath?

Before I was able to store email passwords in the Windows Credential Store and pass them to the Email activities as variables.
How am I going to achieve this since now I can retrieve only secured string which works only in type.

Hi Apeksha, in my opinion you need to create an activity that returns a string from a SecureString. Until then you can use this work-around for resolving this issue:

Until then String plainStr = new System.Net.NetworkCredential(string.Empty, secureStr).Password
