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?

Premium is a separate cost.  I use it on all my computers for Antivirus and Malware protection.  With the premium you get Android premium as well.

@userspVnYiZ3Hh as stated above, it's malware.  Download and install Malwarebytes from the play store and scan the phone, it should take care of it.
