    Yes, in the RowDataBoundEvent of the GridView, grab the Text of the relevant cell and change it to your text.

    How to decrypt it?? Then you need to tell us what encryption technique you are using and what code you are using??

    Just a typo
    //using C#
    protected void myGridView_RowDataBound(object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)
         If (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow)
            e.Cells[8].Text = DecryptPassword(e.Cells[8].Text);
            // I assumed 8 because it seems to be the column number in your code
    private string DecryptPassword(string encryptedPassword)
        //your code here to return decrypted password
