    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."

    Nope I do not have any Anti-Virus app installed at all.

    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!

    Exclamation Re: Unauthorized App

    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
