No Suggested Password

Description

Since WordPress 4.3, new users are no longer sent their passwords directly by email. Instead, they are sent a message containing a link to the Reset Password page, where they can choose their own password. Additionally, the Reset Password page now appears with a strong password already suggested in the “New password” field.

This plugin removes the suggested password from the Reset Password page, because often users assume that their password has already been set to this new suggested password (leading to repeated password reset requests, frustration and unnecessary helpdesk queries.)

Installation

  1. Install this plugin via the WordPress plugin control panel,
    or by manually downloading it and uploading the extracted folder
    to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. That’s all! There are no configurable options for this plugin.

FAQ

Does this plugin force users to choose strong passwords?

No. Other plugins can be used for that.

Can my users still get a password suggestion?

No. Please use our “Clarify Password Reset” plugin if you want a
“Suggest a password” button, plus other helpful functionality.

Users sometimes get confused when they come to a password field that's already been filled out for them with a long and complicated password. It's not obvious to them that they can select and delete that password. This little plugin bypasses the problem beautifully by clearing the suggested password and leaving users to pick their own. There are no settings to mess about with. It just does one job and does it well. I want to thank the plugin authors for writing this plugin and for sharing it for free. Thank you so much!
