Password recover feature


#1

Hello !

Is there a way to specify a “recover password” option in Yunohost? It would be really great if an option to recover a password (either with a backup email address or a security question - or other) existed. It unfortunately happens more often that we would like that users forget their password. Does such a feature exist or could be implemented?

I apologize if this has already been discussed.

Hi there,

yes, that’s a recurring question : https://github.com/YunoHost/issues/issues/878

Unfortunately there’s no trivial solution to this, and that’s just one drop in the todo-list ocean so … mainly the issue is to find someone to work (finding a reasonable solution and implementing it…)

Hi @Aleks,

Thank you very much for your quick reply, I had guessed that this had already been proposed. I like the idea of sending an email to the sysadmin, and would indeed love it to be implemented. I totally understand the lack of time, and hope that someone will work on it some day.

Thanks again!
