    Default Unauthorized App

    My phone keeps telling me that there is an Unauthorized Application that is trying to access my phone and it getting really Annoying. When I click/tap on it, it just shows a list of applications I have installed. HELP ME PLEASE.

    Have you installed any sort of anti-virus app on your phone? I don't think there's anything is standard Android that would decide an app was "unauthorized."
    PLEASE, when asking for help provide as much information as possible. We can't help unless we know what the symptoms are and what you did before they began.

    Could it be Samsung's Knox security? Any way you could post a screenshot?

    I have heard it has something to do with Knox, but I do not know any thing more than that.

    I'm gonna take a stab in the dark and guess you have a Samsung device that received an OS update sometime in the recent past. The 4.3 OS update doesn't play nice with the device. I fixed it by doing the following...

    Go to Settings > More > Security > Security Policy Updates > Check For Updates.

    Install any updates.

    Can you maybe post a screen shot of that 'Security Policy Updates' as I can't seem to find it on my S4's Security settings?

    Thx!

    I have the same problem, none of the above helped so far: don't we have any Samsung officials on this Forum to share some light on this matter?

    I eventually got a security update popping up and once updated, the issue seems to be gone.

    I guess it was just a hiccup on the new android 4.3 development
