Cautions of using password protection in Act! Premium 11.0

Our software consultant advised us NOT to use password protection in our login, but we have come across a few instances where we want to protect a users information and thought password protection would be quite useful. The consultant's warnings was that if the password is lost or forgotten there is no way to get back into that user's account. There is no master (admin) password reset tool?

Any administrator user can reset other users passwords but they have to be able to open the database to do so. There is no backdoor. Database repair services can externally reset the password with a special utility.
