Early today, I changed my password, just regularly changed its after a few months. Then, I saw in my Trust page (in Black color) the message:
"This user changed his/her password recently."
Hours later, logging in a few times, and could not log in. Not sure what happened. Then, I had to reset password through my email.
Then, logging account again, and checking myips page: https://bitcointalk.org/myips.php (nothing strange with recent log-in IPs).
Next, I visited the Trust page again, what I saw is different than previous message:
"This user's password was reset recently."
From my experience, I guess that the forum has different indicators for password change/ reset; with different messages, different colors; and different font sizes too.


Password change through email is likely marked with bigger font size and orange color, to show potentially higher risks of account change hands.

I remember that admin stated somewhere that those lines will dissappear after 14 days, right?

Just to keep a copy of your post.

Make a really long hard password. Don’t change it often.

Last time I altered my password was over two years ago.
It is a very long password .

My recovery email has a really long password.
I have a lot of fear of being hacked.

I see BTC as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions.

I guess what you meant. It is just my second time I changed my password after I seriously used the forum.
After creating account here, I rarely logged in, and visited the forum, just creating account due to curiosity. Resetting password sometimes in the past, back in 2017.  Smiley
The problem is likely come from I wrote down my new password wrongly at only one figure, that sounds stupid.
