I've been getting a lot more password reset emails recently, and obviously, it's not me doing it.

Quite likely, many of the requests are phishing attempts.


I'm finding it quite spooky that strangers are attempting to hack.

Are you seeing more password reset emails of late?

That's probably due to your Twitter handle. If I had a simple generic one-work nic then I'm sure I'd be getting those too. I could probably count on one hand the number of faulty password reset mails I've received on ALL if my accounts.
