Modify Password Reset Email text in Laravel

Last Updated at : February 11, 2018 By - Usama Muneer | 9869

    If you’re using Laravel‘s default authentication for your user management, but wanted to change URI’s and text in the default Password Reset email. Well There’s a way out we can achieve that in Laravel.

    Default Layout & Text


    Create a new Notification

    Let’s start by creating a new Notification for our new custom emailer with laravel artisan CLI.

    php artisan make:notification MailResetPasswordNotification

    You can now find this file under app\Notifications. Right into the toMail method, we can make our modifications.

    public function toMail( $notifiable ) {
       $link = url( "/password/reset/?token=" . $this->token );
       return ( new MailMessage )
          ->subject( 'Reset your password' )
          ->line( "Hey, We've successfully changed the text " )
          ->action( 'Reset Password', $link )
          ->line( 'Thank you!' );

    Here we’ve modified the action URI, added the view to be loaded for our email, added a couple of lines and an attachment for our Reset email to look more cool.

    Override the sendPasswordResetNotification method

    By default, User model uses the canResetPassword trait for resetting the passwords, you can find this file under vendor/laravel/framework/src/illuminate/Auth/Passwords/CanResetPassword.php

    Now Its time to tell our User.php to use our custom notification instead of the default one. Let’s overrideĀ sendPasswordResetNotification.

     * Send the password reset notification.
     * @param  string  $token
     * @return void
    public function sendPasswordResetNotification($token)
        $this->notify(new App\Notifications\MailResetPasswordNotification($token));

    Repeat the password recovery steps again & these changes should reflect now in the email.
