I was looking in Google's Advanced Settings to look up a stored password and I found a strange account name stored with all my other Gmail accounts. When I clicked on Show Password, there was no password.




Is this indicative of someone hacking in to my computer?

I have a secured wireless network. Could someone have cracked my password? It's long and complex. The idea of having to reset my router and reprogram all my devices is not pleasant, and I hope I won't be forced to do that.

Thanks in advance.
