Facebook To Users Changing Passwords: Were You Hacked?

One of our readers decided to change their Facebook password and encountered a dialog box asking if they changed it because their account was hacked, or if they just wanted to change it.

We wonder if Facebook added this step to the process to protect users who were hacking victims from facing repercussions from actions that were performed by the hackers using their accounts.

Readers: Have you seen a similar step when changing your password for Facebook or other websites?

Thank you to Social Yeah Founder Kevin Evanetski for the tip and screen grab.
