Nobody is perfect. Don’t think technology is perfect. Even when you try to make sure everything goes right, there are surprises that only a human can rectify. Technology will go crazy on you.
I hate changing my password. I have multiple memorized nonsense that I hope keeps me safe, but I sometimes make it more difficult than I think it should be, but it is the only way to do due diligence.
When this hit the news today, (see this article at troyhunt.com for many details on this breach). I was not surprised in the least. The best tech people in the world cannot totally eliminate the possibility of a hack. If you aren’t in IT, don’t complain about password changes. If you are in IT, keep up the hard work.
Go ahead and change that password.
