How to Reset Customer Password in Magento 2?
In Magento 1 there was a default functionality that users were allowed to change their password to a distinct string. But in Magento 2 that functionality doesn’t exist. In place of that Magento 2 offers something different. If you’re in Admin Panel to reset the password, Magento 2 will ask customers to follow the reset link sent to their registered mail id.
This is quite convenient for some people as they don’t require to remember a password and can easily reset the password with a single click on email but what if your customer wants to access their account by inserting a specific password, and not by following the reset link sent on mail?
This blog is just about that, It will help developers or admins working on the development of the site. To reach the roots of the solution keep reading this blog :)
