First of all why should we get text message alert if the password changed?
Are we keeping our passwords in secure while accessing our mail id's whether for personal or official?
Just think, if someone got your password, then they will get all the information/details of your personal mails from your inbox or personal folder such as credit card information, netbanking details and any other sensitive information. Also they can change your password after they have got the access of yours login credentials. So that you could not access next time your owned login.
