    I exchanged my laptop at Best Buy, I made a new user account and deleted my old account and home folder...

    However I forgot to delete the VPN profile....

    Should I change all my passwords to everything?

    There is a chance they will not wipe it clean. I would change passwords - NOW.

    The OP forgot to do that, which is why he's asking.

    OP, change your password, just in case, if anything for peace of mind.

    Yes, you should change them.

    Both my PowerBook and MBP in my sig were bought used and both had the previous owner's data on it, including saved form info for websites, saved Bluetooth pairings, music collections, you name it.
