Feature: #98517 - Username in backend password reset mail¶
Many users forget their login username and try to login with their email address. The username of the backend user is now displayed in the password recovery email alongside the reset link.
The username of the backend user is displayed in the password recovery email alongside the reset link.
Be aware, this feature comes with security risks:
Previously, a third-party that gained access to the email account could only reset the password of the TYPO3 backend user, but not login if the username was different to the email address.
Now it has all the information needed to login into the TYPO3 backend and potentially could cause damage to the website.
We highly recommend protecting backend accounts using MFA.
It is also possible to override the ResetPassword email template to remove the username and customize the result.
