UCK, I would change my PW....ASAP!

Also, do a full scan of your computer with Malwarebytes and Windows Defender.......I bet you get infected somehow.

After busting my brains, about how that could have happened, it almost happened again today ...
What I saw (I am NOT a touch typist, so I have to look at the keyboard !), was my password slowly appearing in that search block.

What happened was that I actually did not have to *sign in*, so the site came up and while it slowly did, I started to type my password, which, because that search block is active, started to appear in that block ...

So, in my case ... duuuhhh ...
