Popup when logging into Scoutbook Today

I received this popup today when I logged into scoutbook. Is this a Scoutbook breach or just a general breach of passwords?

And do I need to change my password on scoutbook or at myscouting? or both?

Thank you,

try opening up an incognito window and try again - that looks like an extension you have or maybe a virus you have. I am not seeing this and IT has no reports on it

Ok, so I did log incognito and it did not pop up. Can you explain to me what that proves or doesn’t prove?

Does that show I may have a virus? Eekks :frowning:

Thank you,

it might be some security Extension you have installed. Incognito windows typically turn off all your extensions.


There have been no reports of Scoutbook passwords being compromised. This pop-up is not coming from Scoutbook. This is a legitimate message from Chrome.

Chrome is not telling you Scoutbook has been compromised but that the ID/password combination you are using may have been. Security experts recommend not using the same ID/password on multiple sites.

See https://support.google.com/chrome/thread/23534509?hl=en for more details on this message.

Here is another reference with more details on the pop-up. Google Security Blog

Thank you for the information. I’m one who likes to know more of the details.
