Hello everyone,


The Community Tech team[1] has released a new feature: Enhanced Password
Reset[2]. We developed this feature in response to the #3 wish[3] from the 2019
Community Wishlist Survey[4]. With this feature, you can prevent password
reset emails from being sent unless both your username and email address
are provided on Special:PasswordReset. This is an optional feature,
available in the “Email options” section of Preferences. If you enable the
feature, you can reduce harassment through unsolicited password reset
emails. For more information, you can visit the Help:Password Reset page[5]
and the project page[6].


Thank you,


Ilana Fried

Product Manager, Community Tech
