API User Password issue

My org uses an API User to integrate other tools with Salesforce. One more integration requires API User password but I dont know the password. How can I get around this situation?

Tree options:

1. if you have access to the email inbox of the virtual user, on login screen click password forgotten, get the email en reset the password.
2. Install the free appexchange app Mass Password, with which you can select a user and set a password without the user being notified
3. Open developer console - execute anonymous and run:

System.SetPassword('Userid','PasswordChosen');

Replace Userid with the id of the API User and replace PasswordChosen with a password you chose yourself but meets the password policy requirements. This will set the password on the userid you chose.
