Is this popup from McAfee??

A friend of my wife is getting a popup when sending an email reply to my wife that says it's from McAfee, saying :

"Are you sure you want to send this email"
"We found a link in your email that goes to a risky site".
I can't find any reference on the web to those 2 phrases. My wife uses GMail; her friend's account is on "".  I honestly don't know if the message is coming from her friend's web browser, a McAfee product installed on her device, or something on the "" side.
Is this legit?

Hello @thompsop 

Does the message appear when sending e-mails only to a specific person or to everyone?
