Suspicious message in Google Play store
New here, not native english speaker, and new to android (thrilling combination, right? :) )
Facing this problem the last few hours: Everytime I try to install an app from Goggle Play Store a strange message-box appears, telling me: "Enjoy your app! If you ever forget your password, we can help restore access to your Google Play Library and purchases. Tap "Continue" to tell us how to contact you".
The apps do download without taping the "Continue" but I don' think this box should appear... (I posted a screenshot as attachment).
I performed 2 scans (with Clean Master and AVG) and nothing suspicious was found.
Plus, I cleared all internet cache and data, in case it was coming from a website, but I keep getting the same message.
I am on a Galaxy s3 mini, not rooted.
Any suggestions would be very much appreciated, since the last thing I want to do is a factory reset...
Thanx in advance :)
