Wifi Window Popped-Up on Mac

New Poster

Wifi Window Popped-Up on Mac

Hello.  I just wanted to make sure I didn't accidentally log-in to a fake page.  A window (or app) popped-up on my computer for the first time (I never downloaded it).  It asked me for my log-in and computer name.  It didn't look entirely legit - like the rest of Xfinity's site.  Is this their Connect App?

Here is the address it used:

Looking at Internic, there is no registrar data for this link:  https://reports.internic.net/cgi/whois?whois_nic=wifilogin.xfinity.com&type=registrar

That's an extremely picky form. It doesn't even recognize"my.xfinity.com".

Try https://whois.icann.org/en/lookup?name=wifilogin.xfinity.com instead.

 

Comcast's DNS recognizes that host:

 


C>nslookup wifilogin.xfinity.com
Server: cdns01.comcast.net
Address: 75.75.75.75

 

Non-authoritative answer:
Name: xfwweb.g.comcast.net
Address: 69.252.205.105
Aliases: wifilogin.xfinity.com
