Many WordPress websites have default password reset forms, but customising your own password reset form gives you an added layer of security and allows you to have full control over the process. A custom password reset form also allows you to customise the look and feel of the page to match the design and branding of your website.
The Login & Signup block from The Plus Blocks for Gutenberg, allows you to add a separate password reset form on any page.
