Re: [Wikimedia-l] New Feature from Community Tech: Enhanced Password Reset

2020-05-12 Thread Ilana Fried
@Jan: Hello! In February, we enabled the feature for two projects
(Wiktionary and Wikivoyage). This was because we wanted to release
incrementally and collect feedback before releasing to all wikis. This
recent update confirms that the feature has been released to all wikis and
the project is now complete. Thanks!

I am a bit confused Ilana. Could you help me understand the difference from
the February announcement?

Re: [Wikimedia-l] New Feature from Community Tech: Enhanced Password Reset

2020-05-12 Thread Rehman Abubakr
This is a really useful feature, thank you.

I hope https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T153454 would also be considered 
sometime in the near future. It's not directly related, but related to password 
security.

Tldr, if I use abc123 as my password, I would get my normal admin account. But 
if I use xyz456 I would get it to the same account, but reduced access to power 
tools (useful for public computers).



Yours truly,

Rehman<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Rehman>

Hello everyone,


The Community Tech team[1] has released a new feature: Enhanced Password
Reset[2]. We developed this feature in response to the #3 wish[3] from the 2019
Community Wishlist Survey[4]. With this feature, you can prevent password
reset emails from being sent unless both your username and email address
are provided on Special:PasswordReset. This is an optional feature,
available in the “Email options” section of Preferences. If you enable the
feature, you can reduce harassment through unsolicited password reset
emails. For more information, you can visit the Help:Password Reset page[5]
and the project page[6].


Thank you,

A nice additional layer to the system, thankyou. Perhaps it may be possible
for those users with TFA activated to also make it a requirement for a
password reset requests.
