Ready-to-use password reset form with React

In this section, we add an automatic password reset form that allows a user to:

#Example: React password reset form

#Install the Userfront React library

To add the form to your React project, first install @userfront/react with npm (or yarn).

#Render the password reset form in React

First, initialize the Userfront React library with your account ID using Userfront.init().

Build the PasswordResetForm component with Userfront.build() using the tool ID corresponding to your password reset form. This can be found in the Toolkit section of the Userfront dashboard.

Render the <PasswordResetForm /> component in your React app.

#Test mode

By default, your form is in test mode. This allows you to experiment and develop locally without affecting your live data.

Test mode is used automatically for any domains that are not secured with https:// or that are not added to your list of live domains.

When in test mode, Userfront does not send a password reset email to the user. Instead, a link is displayed directly in the form. This allows you to use dummy email addresses while in test mode if desired.

#Password reset link

The automatic form can send password reset links to a user.

When the user submits their email address, Userfront sends them an email with a link to reset their password. This link directs the user to your Password reset path, which is where you should add your password reset form.

Password reset links are valid for 1 hour and can only be used once.

#Reset a password

When the user clicks on a password reset link, they are directed to your Password reset path. You must add your password reset form to this page.

The password reset form allows the user to enter and confirm their new password.

Upon successful password reset, the user is redirected to your After-login path.
