Thinking About Changing Your Password? Don’t. 

Although many people’s first reaction to such a breach would be to just update passwords, you could actually be putting yourself more at risk. 

Unless the application you’ve changed your password to has updated its security protocol, your new password is just as accessible as your old one. This gives hackers all the more reason to target you, since you’ve given them two passwords instead of one.
