Allow to recover username

Description

Currently there is an option to recover a lost password. OTOH it is also common to forget the username. An option to recover the username with a given mail address would be helpful. If clicked, then it should send the related username to the given address (when there is a user with that address). If password is also lost, then the recover password can be called as next step by the user.

This has already been requested in #10762 before.

I'm lost here. What do you mean, some password reset limitation? You shouldn't be able to recover any password from a password store without extra-ordinary effort, or it's a joke store security-wise.

Probably you call it "reset password". What I want to say is that username recovering should only recover username, not modify password. If I lost username and password, then first step is to recover username and with this use the existing reset password method as next step.

Ok, thanks for the clarification.

This is totally in-line with the mentioned ticket then. It demands a 2-stepped approach as well, so this ticket is a duplicate indeed. Thanks for taking care anyway, and follow #10762 instead, please.
