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?

You can stop seeing those pop up type things from ever showing up in the first place by simply turning off your browsers ability to allow web sites to "Java script" your browser.

Chrome app->3 dot menu->Settings->Advanced->Javascript

This will also affect the "good sites" so your experience on those sites may change.

I only use chrome sometimes to browse, so this is a safe thing to do?

I saw the same thing. Should I download the cleaner app from Google play to clean up my phone? Is this legit or not?

I couldn't tell if it was legit but I did download a maleware app that was suggested below and it found one maleware and it's been 24 hrs and haven't seen anything else.
