  • Hello @Adam_H,

    Do you receive any pop-up notifications in this context? Can you post a screenshot please? First, we need to make sure the notification is legit, because this can also be a phishing attempt.

    Bitdefender does not show any warning at all?

    Cheers.

    I had the same kind of thing too, the email from Google said "Someone might have accessed your Google Account using harmful malware on one of your devices. You’ve been signed out on that device for your protection."

    When I opened my browser my Google account was signed out, so I ran the Bitdefender scans again and they didn't find any issues. This is the only device that was signed out.

    I didn't click on any link in the email, but it's from [email protected] and the only link in the email was https://accounts.google.com/[email protected]&continue=https://myaccount.google.com/alert/nt/1660654182079?rfn%3D311%26rfnc%3D1%26eid%3D-7376030685021970570%26et%3D2 so everything seems legit.

  • Hello @kambakh,

    Do you receive the "threat detected" notification, by any chance? Can you attach a screenshot with the notification, showing how many times it has been displayed?

    Thank you

  • this happened to me too, it only affected one gmail account out of the few that are signed in on my pc. i've done the rescue environment and many scans recently and they're all clean, but i did get a virus that affected my pc pretty badly about a month ago, though i'm not sure if it's related because everything shows up as clean now.
