Identity Protection

McAfee Protection Center notifications on Total Protection shows that a Compiled Breach List on my email password has been made on 9 breaches. Mainly 1/7/2019.

However, after entering the verification code sent to me by McAfee to see the password that has been breached I can see that this password has never been used. Is it likely that Scammers sell made up lists to other scammers to defraud them? Rather poetical if so.

This still leaves me with "Breaches" not being addressed. Is there a way of hiding or deleting the breach notifications that I know are false?

Hi @LesH 

Greetings from McAfee,

Sorry for the inconvenience caused. We request you to kindly click on view icon next to compiled breach. it will take you to another page where you can see the site information. Once you get the site , kindly close that page and return to the main protection center screen it will give you the option to click on breach addressed. kindly click on it. the breach will get addressed.

Regards,
Smita

Re: Identity Protection

Thanks Smita_Kumari for your reply. Your instructions were almost as you described.

After clicking on the View button and viewing the breach details and then closing the page there wasn't an option to click on Breach Addressed.

However, if I kept the view breach details page open there was a button "Thanks for telling me". Once I clicked on that I got a message to say Breach Addressed.

Regards

Les
