    don't think it's the knox thing since the knox thing comes with 4.3 jellybean and it's already under applications, well actually it could be related to it.. but i don't know lol

    ... but now that people are asking if they should get the policy update.. im curious too since I just had the icon popped up on my phone as well requesting policy updates.

    I got this update and attempted to force close it but that didn't work. Once complete I was immediately followed by a pop up that my phone has an update which would be 4.3 (which I haven't done yet).
