How to Replace Default WooCommerce Lost Password URL

WordPress offers a password recovery and reset process that helps users regain access to their accounts. 

When a user requests a password reset, WordPress sends them an email to the registered address that contains a reset link, similar to the following URL:

https://example.com/wp-login.php/action=lostpassword

Sometimes you might be redirected to a different URL instead of the WordPress default lost password URL. This could happen when some other plugin also has a password recovery option. 

For instance, WooCommerce has a custom lost password URL that is triggered when a user requests a password reset from within WooCommerce. In this case, WooCommerce lost password recovery URL is sent instead of the default WordPress recovery URL. 

As a result, whenever you’ll click the "Lost your Password" option on the login page, you’ll be redirected to the WooCommerce custom lost password URL. 

LoginPress can help you replace the default WooCommerce Lost Password with the default WordPress lost password URL.

Let’s see how you can replace the custom WooCommerce Lost Password URL with the default WordPress Lost Password URL.
