    I've just had a request to reset my password due to a site breach on daily chess .com
    Anyone else?

    Who was it from exactly? I have not seen anything.
    It was a message on my Acer chromebook when I logged in.
    Can't remember the wording exactly, but it said something like "there has been a security breach on daily chess .com.We recommend you change your password.
    I've only recently bought the chromebook and I set it up unknowingly on daily chess as opposed to redhotpawn but it works exactly the same.
    I had no warning on the pc where I use firefox
    I have sent feedback anyway.
    In case you, or anyone else ever have to do it, changing the password can be quite laborious.
    You can't just select your own password.
    RHP send you an e mail and you have to use the one they send.
    I suppose you can change it to one of your choice later but it all workls fine (on the pc and chromebook both with the new password)so I don't think I'll bother.
