Important: your Email Address was found on the Dark Web

I received two notices of this.  When I click the link, I get to a site that won't accept my login info.  But obviously, my login info works because here I am.

Are these error reports themselves invalid or spam?

Re: Important: your Email Address was found on the Dark Web

Today I found a charge on my credit card for Paramount Plus after that popup appeared.
now I've had to cancel my credit card and get the bank to issue a new one! i have never had Paramount Plus and yet a charge mysteriously appears after I entered my email on the pop up showing from McAfee WTF is going on?!!! I pay all this money to McAfee only to find sh** like this popping up on my browser spamming me!!

Re: Important: your Email Address was found on the Dark Web

They aren't being emailed they are popping up on the Chrome browser! They look very legit, no spelling errors, even on this webpage it popped up on the right hand side of the window asking if I'd like McAfee to check if my email is on the Dark web.

Re: Important: your Email Address was found on the Dark Web

This just happened to me this morning, message looks completely legit when it pops up when in the Chrome browser.  Do you want to check your email address (pre populated with the address linked to our McAfee account)... you click 'yes' and it quickly says there are two data breaches found - it says to click on the link to see what we found and how you can make yourself safer...  I didn't click on the link... but searched and found this thread.  McAfee - please can you let us know what's happening, and provide some reassurance?!

Exactly the same here

Popups from McAfee re clearing of cookies, etc are not uncommon, but would be good

to be informed of a new service.
