I own a Galaxy S10, and after the recent update I've started getting warnings from McAfee in my Chrome browser telling me sites I've been visiting for years are suspicious... except I don't have and have never had McAfee installed on my phone or browser. I've searched my apps and turned up empty-handed, and searching online hasn't helped either, so any idea what this is?

    Do you think the warning is displayed by an app or can the warning be caused by the web-site itself (e.g. a dialog created by JavaScript in the HTML page may be from an ad shown on the page)?

    If possible, could you take the screenshot when it happens and upload it here? Currently, I believe it's kind of the usual scareware to make you "download/buy" (fake) antivirus app.

After further investigation it appears to be the digital secure app. I'm not sure why it says McAfee in the browser.
