Default HELP!!! Sorry if in wrong place

This keeps popping up at least 3 times a day since I did the latest update. Also to mention, all apps on my phone are from the Play store. Any idea how to rid of this annoying pop up?

I know this isn't exactly the answer you're looking for, but if you check the "do not show for 30 days" box, shouldn't that make it, y'know, not bother you for 30 days?

Also, have you tried hitting "View Apps" to see what app is the problem? I mean, maybe you've picked up some malware.

This is what they do after the update. Just hit "cancel" if you must, or just ignore it as I do. I'm fearful of what nonsense may ensue if one actually goes ahead and installs the security policy.

As I was informed, if you updated to 4.3 then the security policy is already installed and active. The pop up in the OP's post is an update to the policy. I went ahead and installed it last week and have not had a problem with any apps or had another pop up since. I may just be lucky so far but I haven't really heard of any real problems related to doing the update.

It is generally regarded as a bug, huge thread on this issue in the Note 3 forum here :

I got that message when I went to 4.3 because of an issue with TWRP. It has been fixed now, but any apps restored with it gave that message. If I deleted and then re-installed the app from the play store, it would no longer give the message.

Getting rid of it for 30 days only solves it for 30 days lol... I've checked the 'view apps' bit and can't see anything suspicious

No need to do a factory reset, the issue will still be there.
