Does anyone else get this newsletter as an email? I just opened it this afternoon and had an alert that it "contains content typically used to steal personal information."

I've never had that pop up before, and I've been getting it as an email for more than a year or two.

Edited to add: Looks like it was Google that decided it looked "suspicious." It's a great newsletter. Good gardening news and Texas garden club dates and times each month.

I've gotten it for quite a few years (as well as their magazine). I have never received a warning like that and had just read it earlier today.

I'm afraid the scheduled events never work out for me but I enjoy the garden tip each month.
Be content moving inch by inch because, by days end, the inches, will add up to feet and yards.

Fulfilling ambitious objectives is usually done one step at a time.

I'm not familiar with it. I might look into it if Google gives it a thumbs up.

DH determined it was Google that added the alert. I had already deleted it off the iPad, but it was still on the desktop for him to check. I've never gotten that message before, but thought I'd see if anyone else got it. Thanks for feedback.

Wintertime gets a lot of gardenclub hackers, I suspect the bad weather, and new programs on Windows 10 renewing their firewalls...

Why would hackers care about hacking garden clubs? Don't they have bigger targets?

Wasn't a hacker. Just Google being "overprotective, " I guess.

From what I have seen, hackers- can be new kids who are taught in their new computer classes that the first thing they learn is to hack computers. No real targets intended, however, Windows 10 is out, and everyone renews firewalls about the first of the year, I get several notices about alerts- even the bank tells me I am not known to shop there so my cards must be stolen. Simply the season
