Spurious email for password change

Hello, looking for some info if possible? Today I recieved an unsolicited email stating I had requested a password change request on my Netgear equipment. Now as far as I am aware none of my kit is currently NetGear badged. I have ecently installed a new Ethernet switch but that was TP Link. My Router is BT.

 

The link given was https://www.netgear.com/sso/reset/password.aspx then a whole lot of other stuff, including my email address

 

Does anyone know of his is a valid netgear URL or are they aware of any phishing scams based on Netgears support?

 

Thanks for any advice

 

Regards

 

Mike

   Netgear's record keeping is not perfect (or magical).  If you
registered some gizmo in the past, and then got rid of it, then Netgear
might not know what you have or don't.

   With "https://www.netgear.com/" at the beginning, it's a genuine
Netgear site.  Whether it's good for anything is a different question.
