Got a notification about this website, but did not recognise it, having a quick google it does not seem to be legitimate website.

I'm not sure how BreachGuard works as I don't personally use it - assuming this is actually a BreachGuard alert, attaching a screenshot of the alert/warning might be helpful.

That said the following could still be helpful:
Were you intending to visit the site ?
If not start by clearing your browser cache and cookies,including 3rd party cookies and restart your browser.
If that resolves it you should be good to go.
If it doesn't try running your browser with add-ons disabled.

If that resolves it, have you added or updated any add-ons ?
If so try disabling that add-on - and restart and try again.

Cybersecurity is more of an attitude than anything else. Avast Evangelists.

Use NoScript, a limited user account and a virtual machine and be safe(r)!
