Received SMS verification code but didn’t ask for one
Hi, I just got a text message from the usual Rogers number (where I’ve received messages before) with a verification code. I didn’t request one, should I assume that someone is trying to access my account?
I can understand how concerning it is to get a 2FA code without actually requesting one. It is possible someone may be trying to gain unauthorized access to one of your accounts. I would recommend changing your passwords as a safety precaution and ensure to use a strong password.

Thanks. I was informed via online chat that there would be an investigation into this as I did not request the code. It seems like there may have been multiple users doing this.
Will we be informed of the findings of that investigation? I'd like to know if my password was compromised or if this was some other glitch or exploit (where my password wasn't compromised). I've changed it anyway but would prefer to know.
