We advised that you keep a safe backup of your recovery phrase before resetting your Metamask wallet to ensure that you don't lose access to it in the unlikely event that something goes wrong. By resetting your Reset MetaMask password, you won't lose any of the money in it and you won't have to enter your recovery phrase. We simply advise backing up your recovery phrase because it's the responsible thing to do, given the uncertainty of the situation. Additionally, before you reset your wallet, Metamask advises you to download your state logs. If your wallet still doesn't work properly after you reset it, the official Metamask support staff will use state logs to diagnose the problem.
