Security concern for login in with KDE Online Accounts

The issue is when I want to use KDE Online Accounts and I get what looks like the Google login page. The login page should be a separate browser window showing the complete google url that you want to use to connect. Currently it is just a plain popup which means I have no way of trusting it that in fact it is KDE's Online Accounts popup or someone else's man in the middle popup as KDE.

Here is the example signup window I am talking about:

Normally when I connect accounts using google, Chrome or some other legit browser pops up with the full URL displayed at the top that you can verify the request is going to Google for authentication.

Is there possibly another way to connect the KDE Online Account that clearly shows a legitimate browser and it's URL. Also would like to file it as an enhancement. Where should I send it?
