is it a good pratice to store authentication data in neo4j nodes?

This may seem to be an ingenuous question but i searched for examples without finding anything about. So, is it a good pratice to store authentication data such as usernames and passwords in a neo4j database ? I use ot embedded but i ask for the general case. Ps. I don't want this to became an opinion based discussion , i was just wandering whether there are some technical aspects that make this operation not safe or anyway not so good.

You should be fine, as long as you hash and salt your passwords correctly.

And make sure to communicate over an https connection with authentication with the db or in a trusted network.
