Update old security keys manually doesn't work

Hi,
in defender > security tweaks > update old security keys I have "Your salt keys are 0 days old. You are fine for now." And there is no button "regenerate".
How to update keys despite it?

I think there should be always option to update keys no matter how long it is since last update.
Sometimes you need to update security keys just now for security reasons.

Thanks,
Jiri

    If you just regenerate keys, but you feel like you need to do that again, I suggest doing this manually.
    You can open wp-config.php file and generate new salts on this site https://api.wordpress.org/secret-key/1.1/salt/ and then replace old ones with new ones.

    I will pass your suggestion to Defender developers and they will discuss this feature. I will let you know about the results.

    kind regards,
