To Admin - URGENT

I have received an email from Google today saying one of my passwords I store using Google (in a secure manner) has been found elsewhere on the internet.

Upon logging into Google from a different device I found the message to be legitimate and from Google.

The website that my password has been compromised is the Football Programme Centre.

i have changed my password and URGE everyone else to do the same - please use a password that is NOT used elsewhere on the internet.

Best Regards
Kenny

Whoops!
Just found out my email details have also been hacked, but not from here, from auction website Live Auctioneers, which I sometimes use.

So thanks KCS for making me check my email safety.

Probably a very stupid question but how do you change your password on this site? I have had a quick look but I cannot see an option to do this.

Martino. I had the same problem. I put down that I did not remember my password. Then you will receive an email with a temporary password. Use this then you will enter a new page with 'Change details'. Then reset your password.
I have to thank Kenny (Kcs), for advising me with this.
