    I am posting this, does anyone know about why would I get a Wordfence notifcation about someone logging in, is it just a fluke ?

    I had to reset my password via the database.

    looks like my passowrd was hacked, but I only got an Wordfence notification email today when I tried logging in.

    I got the following email, which indicates someone in the US logged in.

    User IP: 173.227.74.5
