Email Address on the dark web

Can you tell me why there is a email account (***@WORLDNET.ATT.NET)?  I don't have nor have i ever had an account with this email address.  It shows up on the dark web.  How do I ensure that this account is not in use?

 

Thanks,

 

Bill

What's it mean to have an email address "on the dark web"?   Worldnet.att.net is an old dialup account according to wiki.

I also have an old AT&T email that is on the dark web.  How can I remove it?

That didn't work.  It is not in my AT&T profile.  Sometimes when I log into my yahoo account the email pops up but I can't delete it from yahoo either.

HI, karrotz.

 

That link that we provided is not to delete your AT&T account, it is to delete your AT&T email. This helps with deleting the email that is tied to an account or a free email.

 

Just to clarify, we have some questions.

 

What is the domain of your email, that you are trying to delete?

 

How long has this been going on for?

 

Let us know more information, so we can better assist you.
