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.

I did it, scanned my whole phone and found one malware,a barcode scanner that I don't think I've ever used I'm keeping this for the first month free and then I'll see if things are good I'll subscribe. Do you use this? Weird that it was always showing Google. Thank you!!

@Ellin  I subscribe to it for my PC as my Malware/Antivirus and I get the Android for no extra charge.  I've been using it on my PC for a decade.
