    Well, if this is coming in the browser then consider this as a trick by the marketers but if this popup is coming for the phone then I would ask you "Does this phone belongs to you or ..." I don't get the point of getting Device Lost popup until or unless you are not the owner of that device.

    Are you on wifi with your Netflix connected to Chromecast? I've seen that toast message in Netflix before

    I've been seeing the same. I previously had the Nexus 5 and didn't see this. I got the T-Mobile HTC One M8 and converted to GPE and have been seeing it since. As Rocketsaucev2 mentioned, I am using Netflix with Chromecast. Is that what's causing it?

    I'll try and get a screenshot but it's an Android toast notification that pops up for a second or two.

    I'm running an xposed module called burnt toast which gives the app icon responsible for the toast and it was Netflix when I saw it on my X
