Pls advise if Microsoft notifies clients of password change.  I received the following regarding password change ut i don't recollect changing my Google Mail Password.  Could this be a scam?

 

Your password for the Microsoft account fo*****@gmail.com was changed on 9/25/2018 3:12 PM (GMT). If this was you, then you can safely ignore this email. Security info used: Country/region: Canada Platform: Windows Browser: Chrome IP address: 100.43.113.223 If this wasn't you, your account has been compromised. Please follow these steps: 1. Reset your password. 2. Review your security info.

3. Learn how to make your account more secure.

 

I also received the following:

Microsoft account Password reset code Please use this code to reset the password for the Microsoft account fo*****@gmail.com. Here is your code: 4646007 If you don't recognize the Microsoft account fo*****@gmail.com, you can click here to remove your email address from that account. Thanks, The Microsoft account team

I don't recall any notifications on my accounts for password changes. I do know I would get them when I log in on another device that they don't recognize.
