    There is no option related to that, it is defined in the code.

    What is the current setting then please? Can you come up a solution that some users attempt their password say 5 times, then get locked out. Then can't reset it.

    If they wait 15 min. they can try again.
    This is done to protect against bruteforce attacks. It's good that it's made like it is. :)
