Password reset allows the membership provider to replace the current password for a user name with a new, randomly generated password. This is especially useful when the PasswordFormat property is set to Hashed, as users cannot retrieve hashed password values.
The following code example shows the membership element in the system.web section of the Web.config file for an ASP.NET application. It specifies the application's SqlMembershipProvider instance and enables password reset.
