So today I decided to install the app on my wife's iphone to access my insurance site and proceeded to register. I entered my email address and then a required username and was told an email would be sent with a temporary password. When I opened my email program on my main computer there was a email from the insurance site with a temporary username and password. To my surprise the " username " they selected was actually my Microsoft login password I use for this computer. They were only supposed to send me a password. I already entered a username for the site.
My question for the top computer people here is; How did they manage to retrieve my login password? This is just my insurance policy website and I only entered my email address in the field they requested. I didn't enter my password. Also this app was installed on my wife's iphone which is set up with my wife's username and password and email address. I just wanted to have the app there for when we travel. I can access my email on the iphone when travelling but rarely do. The default email is my wife's. In Windows 10 is it that easy to access your information? I am wondering about this. It can't be just a fluke they picked that and used it for the username on their site.. I have never been breached before through my antivirus firewall. its very strange.
Any thoughts on this weird thing?
