Pretty much, even then none of the accounts had suspicious logins, in most cases the passwords go encrypted, and they aren't going to bother to decrypt a 64-bit password.Let me guess... you then changed the password after the notifications/news and any other necessary account information, and it didn't put any of your other accounts for other services in danger, because you don't re-use the same password across services?
If only more people bothered to do these things... e-mail accounts wouldn't still be getting compromised because of credential dumps from service breaches that happened 3 years ago! But... here we are.
Taking 15 min. to go through all the settings carefully is a good ritual, this in all the software (not only security software), who knows what you might find.Safe habits is just one part of a proper security strategy, like a good driver in a well maintained car is less prone to create accidents.
A post-exploitation soft will probably save the poor user, but if properly configured.
Sadly many people add tons of redundant apps/extensions left at default settings, instead of just using one or two ideally configured.
I kept saying here to stop stockpiling but instead learn how to configure and use what you have.
I see some guys being proud about wasting lot of money on dozen apps when just one properly configured would suffice.
