I just logged in after a long time away and as soon as I entered my password and proceeded I got a message from Google thats this site has leaked my password and that I should check my entire password collection in my various accounts.

I am quite fortunate to have a separate password just for here but it is to my great dissapointment that ATS has not donne its best for user security and that this could occur here.

It is an oxymoron and after a quick review it shows that this is not a new thing and has been an ongoing issue.

I would like your thoughts and input and would be interested in a response from the ATS establishment on how and mostly when this is going to be dealt with.

Thank you in advance.

Sounds like a harmful browser addon or some virus on your pc
Do not think google does messages like that, and how could they know what password a site have leaked ?

Sounds like one of those ads for selling a crap monitoring service.

You ran into a trap. I highly doubt Google puts out messages like that, it's a trick. Sounds like a phishing scam to me.

Rest assured that my devices are clean.
Moreover I do not have addons.
I would not comment on the issue if I did not understand it.

As such and knowing my wereabouts I am displeased to say that your reply is lacking in the essence of the issue.

I have come accross this in dubious sites before and in my research these sites proved to be immoral beyond low full while a few have been closed by judicial orders.

Moreover Google has been forced to have this mechanism of user safety in public use as many Web pages have not met law and user requirements.

Ok, so I expect to see tons of other people confirming this then.
It would be crazy to think google have singled you out as the one that got the warning.

Desktop or mobile?

You "got a message from Google," like a pop up, an email, or what? How do you know it was from google?

Sounds like malware...

That is correct which makes me wonder why noone has commented on this before.

And that is why I say it is localized to your workstation.
I done work as a pc repair man, and never heard of this pop up warning you are describing.

... nevermind, just read you said "phone" then I have no idea if it could be real or not

Malware ads attempting to phish, could be network related. ATS didn't leak your #.

I got those a few times using ATS on an iPhone using Safari, and that's the only time it ever happened.

You sound like a professional debunker.
I have worked on IT myself.

Your stance is not towards safety but one of shuting the eyes and doors to something inconvenient whether you ignore it or not.

Try to deny ignorance.

Hint: Since you have disbelief I will hint you that this is not an https site and this is how Google can "see" along with others.

Peace and I hope my post makes things better not worse.
This is not a thread on ego but for us.

I have a recent model Samsung and have been getting dodgy pop up windows like from my Telco saying I'm the lucky customer going in to the draw etc. What you are describing does sound like malware

I have a few old log ons that I hqad forgotten the name and passwords. I have never understood why ATS will not send the information to my registered email address, such as logon name and the option to reset password.

I see what you are saying but there was no fishing route.

All I know from encountering this message the few times I have from any device is runaway or risk it.

There has never been evidence that this was not a genuine Google message though Chrome. Rather the opposite.

They do, well it appears so, get them regarding another site.

This is what I was talking about with me, here.

I know for a fact my phone was neither compromised nor had any viruses.

It's malware disguised as ads, likely, unfortunately, on ATS' end.
