You typically store a hashed value of the password.  Hashs cannot be easily decrypted but can be ran against a rainbow table if someone knows the hashing method used.

This can be tightened up if you use a different SALT for each one.  You can store the salt used in a different table and control access through stored procedures.

OWASP (https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Main_Page) ist a quite good point to start with, apart from all the excellent information that can be gathered here ;-)
