Will be problematic, because a board can be configured to re-use the same Email address for multiple accounts.

And, during update, no changes to passwords are made.

If in general it is difficult for some of your members to remind their username, let them contact you by contact form or mail to request a new password,

It isn't garbage, your request isn't possible due to the very reasons that you were told. If you don't like the answer that is something you have to deal with.

Without modifying core code I doubt that this is possible.

Obviously if you know how to do it you can create your own extension.

Then you have posted in the wrong forum - this is for extension requests and you need the Custom Coding forum.

EDIT:
Oh sorry I am not supposed to reply in this topic - please ignore this post!!!!!

I get almost daily requests from people because they forgot their username and password, that's why I wrote this extension:

Email Only Password Reset

I have raised a ticket for inclusion of a similar feature in phpBB core, this allows recovery of user name(s) from email address, and the resulting email(s) have a link back to the password recovery page.

I have created a PR. If this gets merged to core (and for which version) is outside of my control.

I have set up a test board at: https://xantiav6.co.uk/forgotusername/ You can create an account there and try retrieving your forgotten user name.
That board is configured to allow email address re-use, so you can verify that case also.
