Question: Alert to change password

I have just received a email titled Notification Alert Information from Apple (or appears to be). Advising I have 24 hrs to change my password otherwise my acct will be permanently locked. It says someone signed in to my acct with a Singapore address. Wants me to go to my acct login and change password. Am assuming this is not legit as I dont's see anything on my acct page when I sign in at apple.com.


Please advise

It's a phishing email (genuine emails will address you by name ; they won't send emails about accounts don't getting locked) - you could forward it to Apple : reportphishing@apple.com , and then delete it.
