I'm getting a popup (looks like Microsoft format) asking for the master password for the Software Security Device. I never saw until about two weeks ago. Are you aware of a virus using this approach?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Are you using Firefox? Apparently Firefox and /or Thunderbird has a known pop up that shows this same wording, and it relates to stored passwords. More information here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/use-master-password-protect-stored-logins?redirectlocale=en-US&redirectslug=Protecting+stored+passwords+using+a+master+password

Don’t use any tool to store your password may be some hackers steal your personal information. If you recently install any security tool or third party tool then uninstall them and scan your PC from windows defender.

    As you mentioned security device, did you mean, a physical device/equipment! If yes, what type of that, like firewall/ other type. was  this happened at your office/ belongs to your personal. If this is an office environment, better ask the system admin person.

    This is not a physical device.
    I am using Firefox on my home computer.
