An email notification should be sent when the password on an account is changed.

One example for why this is important - presently somebody may leave their account logged in on an unattended machine with their password saved in their browser auto-complete. A malicious actor could change the password on the account without the account holder being aware that their account has been compromised.

Sending a notification upon password change is a standard security practice implemented by many websites - it does not prevent this scenario, but it does at least inform the account holder that their account is compromised.

(This is a suggestion from a report submitted to https://bounty.decred.org)
