HP Smart is asking for login and password

HP Recommended
HP 2600 series
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Printer just started asking for login and password. I'm using wifi print. Here is what is in the window:


Windows Security

HP Smart


The server is asking for your user name and password. The server reports that it is from www-user@ppstrong.


I've no idea where this is coming from.
