Hi there, when I was looking through my history on chrome to find a page i was at earlier I found that there was this website named something like "usersecuritysafe.date/DH...blablabla" that had been visited more than a few thousand times, was this a breach on the security of my pc/browser? what steps do i take to protect myself and quarantine the problem if there is one?

Try to figure out what software application was "phoning home". Or trying to do so.

Use Task Manager to see what programs are being launched at system startup and running in the background.

Could be some "crapware" software that snuck in along with some other application, update, or driver.

Glasswire firewall will put a plain English name on which country the server is in which is being accessed, as well as the application responsible for the connection, and, the ability to block a connection with a single click......
