Scam message
« on: September 18, 2021, 02:30:51 AM »
Hi
There is a message in my Inbox supposedly from Avast informing me of a "Password leak". I am requested to reset my password by clicking on the highlighted link.
I NEVER click on links that I do not know, or have requested so I am ignoring this message.
The sender's email address was "notifications@avast.com"
There are no Notifications on my Avast page hence my decision to ignore
David

Hi,

Did you perhaps make use of the Hack Alerts feature within Avast Premium Security? https://support.avast.com/en-ww/article/Antivirus-FAQ/#idt_4215
If not, please use this website to check your email address https://www.avast.com/hackcheck/
