for you, who use regularly github

I know I have an account on github, and I know I have used it only once (many months ago).

today I received an email as follows:

I did not requested a new password, and the link on the email seems to be ok.

Has somebody tried to use/steal my account? what would you do?

Haven’t you gotten an e-mail a few weeks back, where they asked you to change your password to something “you will never ever be able to remember” ?

It could just be that someone has a similar email address to you, and typed yours in by mistake, found they couldn’t log in and did a 'forgot password" request.

I wouldn’t worry about it too much (particularly as is sounds like you don’t have a lot of valuable code on Github). As long as your email account is secure, then the only person who receives a password reset request like this is you.

I get these all the time from different sites…

no, I haven’t :slightly_smiling_face:

ok, it never happened to me :slightly_smiling_face: ty

I would suspect someone else tried to reset your pad. Doesn’t mean I’m correct, but that’s what I would guess.
