Depending on how long you've had your password, I would always consider changing it.
Common thinking now is to use a password manager such as LastPass, Dashlane or Keepass and to create randomised passwords for each account.
If you do use LastPass or Dashlane, which stores your passwords online (although in a salted, hashed format) - consider using 2 Factor Authentication to secure the password manager account. Also consider using 2FA to secure accounts which support it. Sadly Virgin Media does not yet use this, although personally I wish they would as well as change the 10 character limit (although I would add that a 10 character random alphanumeric password is reasonably secure)
If you use passwords like Johnny123 - then stop, these passwords aren't really that secure and can be cracked relatively quickly.

that reminds me of a previous job. some very very sensitive information being sent every month by email attachment. what do you think the password was that had been used for some time before i arrived on the scene, 12345? password? abcdefg? no, the password used was the name of the person sending the email!
Got notification from the have I been pwaned site my email address been pwaned.
On checking the have I been pwaned site, my password hasn't. Site also tells me who pwaned it.
The 'have i been pwned' website is a great resource but it is worth pointing out that it is not definitive. Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence.
Simply because haveibeenpwaned.com has no record of your email password being part of the data stolen in a data breach does not mean that it is not part of an as yet unknown data breach or been hacked by a scammer or spammer.
Definitely change your password.

Yes, password changed. But after a struggle! Google wasn't letting me do it? Had to log into webmail using Explorer. But done it via google as well when sorted.
However, the amount of spam is annoying. Russian brides, loosing weight, supermarket gifts, and so on. Don't want to change my email address as so many of my contacts have it. Not only that, read on hear it has not to have been used for a number of weeks before can be changed/removed?
I have the reject all spam enabled, but its still getting through? Anyone know why?
