WordPress 5.7 introduces a new feature that allows website administrators to manually send a reset password link to existing users. This can be helpful when users loose their password and cannot use the lost password link for any reason.

Sending a reset password link is more secure than directly changing the password for the user. Passwords should not be communicated directly.
