Thank you for rating this answer.

I keep getting emails requesting a password change but I didn't request it. How can I stop them?

Its possible this is a result of 'robots' or search engine crawlers submitting the 'forgot password' URL.  To guide them as to what not to crawl, you have can have a robots.txt file. This file should be located in the base directory of your website.

If you already have a robots.txt file, add this to the bottom of it:

Disallow: /authors/forgotpass


If you don't have a robots.txt file, create one in your base website directory with the following contents:

User-Agent: *
Disallow: /articlerss
Disallow: /authors/forgotpass
Disallow: /blogrss
Disallow: /tmp
Disallow: /attachments
Disallow: /cache
Disallow: /newsrss
Disallow: /newsrss.php
Disallow: /blogrss.php
Disallow: /articlerss.php
