Your answer doesn't apply because I changed my password this morning and I am still getting the alert. I do no use simple passwords. I use a password generator.
Also, these alerts are occurring on my desktop, but I am not getting the alert on this (my laptop), I used Chrome and have it synced between my two computers.
I see...thank you for your correspondence. It leaves me to wonder why it is occurring on your Desktop, and not on your laptop? May I ask whom your Password Generator is provided by? You can also seek advice from Technical Support 24\7 at no cost. Phone\Online chat being the most expedient. https://service.mcafee.com/webcenter/portal/cp/home/contact
Also,is 'Amazon' the only website causing the ' Alert' to occur?
All the very Best,
I found the place where it says to view all threats, but when I click on that I get one of those
"This site can't be reached" pages: mcafee-labs’s server DNS address could not be found.
I was posting on my laptop and now I have come back to my desktop and I logged into the site in question twice and now I'm not getting the alert, so guess we'll just wait and see what happens.
I use LastPass.
Last pass should be compatible Thank you for the information. I hope it remains that way. I might add that I noticed this article in regards to Amazon customers. Amazon sparks security fears in customer password e-mail alert | Tech | Life & Style | Daily Express I am not stating that this is the culprit, however wanted to make you aware of the article.
Thank you for the link about the amazon scare.
There is no black arrow on my computers, either one, but I can access Options/About just by clicking on the icon. I see now where it just gives the numbers. I thought it gave actual details of the alerts.
You are quite welcome. You can access your "Security History', by opening your McAfee Security Center, Navigation\Security History and wait for the Window to open.
