    Default Constant Security Police Update notifications in new KitKat on Verizon Galaxy S3

    The update to KitKat arrived on my Verizon Galaxy S3 last week. Since then, no matter how often I dismiss it, a badge keeps reappearing in the notification bar. The notification reads "Security policy updates - The latest security update has already been ...." I went into Settings and turned off automatic security policy updates but it still happens." It's very annoying to be told repeatedly that no update was needed when I didn't ask for one. Even if I had automated updates turned on, why would I want it to notify me every time it checks for an update and one *isn't* there?

    I have an S4, and having the same issue since yesterdays. Probably something wrong with Samsung servers.

    The problem went away almost right after my original post. It happens that it went away immediately after I replaced the battery. The old battery had become slightly bloated with age, causing the back cover to keep popping off. Either the two issues were connected or it's coincidence.

    I am having the same issue with my S5.
    "Security policy updates The latest security policy has already been applied. No further action is needed."

    If that's the case, why am I reminded three or four times a day?!

    I would REALLY like to know how to disable this notification, but I can't seem to find any information anywhere.

    I just started getting a daily prompt about a Samsung Security Update for Android on one of my S3 phones (but not on the other). I did a search to see if this was legit, and found a few things on it (like something about Samsung Knox app, which does not appear in my app drawer), but nothing on how to disengage this annoying prompt every day. Is there any info on this, and why it is doing it to just one phone (both are on Kit Kat, on AT&T)?
