Just got some kind of warning on my phone about installing a cleaner app update due to Samsung hacks, looks official but also suspicious did anyone else get this???? Is it garbage or real?

@Ellin Try installing Malwarebytes and running that to see if it can find the offending app.

Thanks that's what I figured, I didn't open it, glad you confirmed, what's crazy is the warning took up the whine 8 screen, I hope I haven't been hacked but I did delete it

It's probably a Chrome browser scam site loaded in the cache just clear the Chrome browser cache and force stop it.

@Ellin yes, the first time you tap the Chrome icon, chrome will start up again.
