How do I reset a user’s password in WordPress?


  1. George

    Hi… just curious about changing a user’s password — are they alerted to the new fact that they have a new password? Or do I have to contact each one separately and give them the password?

    There’s not a way to send an email forcing them to reset on their own?


    1. Hi George,

      Depending on which option you choose, most of these do not notify the user, and you will have to send them the updated password. Using the built in lost-password feature might be your best bet if you have a lot of users to reset.
