Additional option for Plone users, that make the reset password operation not available

Project Description


This product add to the Plone administrator a new flag on the user profile: “Block user password reset”. This check will mark a specific user as unable to change his own password.

The Plone administrator can still reset the user password from the “Users and Groups” control panel.

When you can need this

This can be useful only in some rare situation, when you need to share a single user account to a set of users (giving them all the same userid and password), and for whatever reason you can’t/don’t want create multiple users. Obviously you don’t want that an evil guy inside this set of users can change the password.

Plone security

Keep in mind that Plone can handle change password using its own security, playing with Set own password permission.

Use this product only if you need to control the change password behavior only for specific(s) users.


This product has been tested on Plone 3. It will not work on Plone 4, due to deep changes in the user data infrastructure.


This product was developed by RedTurtle Technology team.
