This plugin redirects newly-registered users to the Admin -> Edit Profile page when they first log in. Until they have changed their password, they will not be able to access either the front-end or other admin pages. An admin notice is also displayed informing them that they must change their password.
New administrators must also change their password, but as a safety measure they can also access the Admin -> Plugins page.
