Fake or real email from McAfee? “Confirm it?s you” when viewing ID Protection "New breaches"

I've been trying to verify whether this is a legit email coming from McAfee. When you try to view further details of a listed incident (where your personal information was found on the dark web by pressing "VIEW") does McAfee send an email with a code that must be input to the app to view the details (see attached pic)? The email address seems legitimately tied to a McAfee address (**personal information omitted**) but the email is oddly titled "Confirm it?s you"  (I colored text red for emphasis).  The question mark between the "t" and "s" seems odd for the company to use (should be apostrophe)--especially given McAfee is a security company and typos in emails are often a sign of phishing. Does anyone know if this is the expected app behavior/this email is legit? Tx.
