I have received two emails from Apple in the past couple of hours with the following content:




To reset your Apple ID password, simply click the link below. That will take you to a web page where you can create a new password.


Please note that the link will expire three hours after this email was sent.




Obviously, someone has entered my fairly unique email address to reset my Password in iForgot (which is where the link takes me, so this doesn't appear to be a phishing scheme, since my actual name is used in the body of the email.


Should I be worried? I have double authentication for Apple, so it would be nearly impossible for anyone to actually hack my account (but I suppose anything is possible). And it appears that this email is doing exactly what it's supposed to do, which is send an email to my main email address telling me how to change my password.


Any suggestions, or don't worry about it?
