    Unless, as you say you've already been hacked and the question there is how would you know? But I agree, the constant updating/changing of a secure password serves no purpose at all.
    I used to be conceited but now I'm perfect.

    And it seems a few others agree but too bad some sites and forums don't, including various subtopics:
    Should You Change Your Passwords Regularly?
    - Why Changing Passwords Won’t Necessarily Help
    - When You Do Want to Change Passwords

    Unless, as you say you've already been hacked and the question there is how would you know?
    I guess if the site notifies you that they were hacked, if they even knew
    Or you read or hear that one of your financial institutions was hacked on some news report…
