How Do You Send A First Time User A Password Reset Link? (

Posted 9 months ago by larel_b

I followed @bashy on this post:

I am generating a token like this:

$reset_token = hash_hmac('sha256', Str::random(40), $user);

I am inserting a record in the password_resets table like this:

       'email' => $request->email,
        'token' => $reset_token,
        'created_at' => Carbon::now(),

The user gets an e-mail sent through a custom notification with the correct token (it matches on the link and in the hidden input field on the view).

I keep getting this after following the link, filling in the form, and clicking on reset password:

This password reset token is invalid.

I have also tried this to generate the token (same error):

$reset_token = strtolower(str_random(64));
