Often times we get suggestions from other people to create complex passwords, this is so that the password we create is difficult to access someone (hackers), but often we forget the password we have created. So we need to reset the password so we can access it again on the desired site.
This also applies to one of platform such as OJS (Open Journal Systems). Recently, the name OJS has begun to be discussed a lot on social media or other media, so it is not uncommon for those who have forgotten their previous password.
