The character is used as a delimiter when testing for interwiki user rights (In Special:UserRights, it is possible to modify users on different databases if the delimiter is used, e.g., Someuser@enwiki).

It is recommended that you have this delimiter in $wgInvalidUsernameCharacters , or you will not be able to modify the user rights of those users via Special:UserRights.

Since MediaWiki 1.27, this character is also a delimiter in bot passwords.
