Hilton has now finally added the “terms and conditions” to changing the password and receiving the bonus points.

Conclusion

This Hilton HHonors password situation has been a huge mess. Many members found their accounts emptied of points and used for merchandise. There was (probably still is) an underground market where these compromised accounts were sold to buyers who then used the points to order stuff.

Hilton should have communicated this password change much better and not backpedaling on its points promise (changing dates).
