It hasn’t been updated in a long time but it works!
Interface: Could be better.
Dialogs: Alarmist, but for obvious reason – Don’t mess up when changing passwords!
Features: Does what it says though the log option doesn’t appear to work.
I came here to change all the passwords of a specific user role and kick butts, and I’m all out of passwords to change. 😉
Effective and useful plugin, but as others have indicated, the setting descriptions and content for the email is horrible. Lots of grammatical mistakes and the language is not generic enough — it suggests the password is reset due to “violation issues.”
