Identity Protection Service - email about Security activation

I have received an email purportedly from McAfee starting:
"Identity Protection Service


Your Identity Protection Service has new features that require activation."

With several links in it to the domain where I am expected to sign-in with your primary McAfee email address and password


This seems to me to be a good way of phishing for my password. Are my suspicions well-founded, or is this more likely a genuine thing?
