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…
ok, it never happened to me ty
I would suspect someone else tried to reset your pad. Doesn’t mean I’m correct, but that’s what I would guess.
