    Welcome to Android Central! I'm not quite sure what I'm looking at. Are those notifications you're getting in the notification panel? Or is it a popup that's supposed to look like your notifications?

    Regardless, you probably installed some kind of adware or other unwanted app on your phone alongside some other app that you did intend to install. Uninstall apps one by one until the problem goes away.

    Assuming that's your account, did you attempt to log into your Google account at the specified time? If so, do you use a VPN? And do you use Opera as your browser, or some other browser?

    If you didn't try logging into your Google account at that time, then it's possible someone is trying to access your account. You should immediately change your Google password, and make sure you have 2-step authentication turned on.

    Can you sign into your Google account normally on a computer?

    At this point, you may just want to do ao full factory reset, and make sure you set the phone up as a new phone, rather than restoring any prior backups. Then see if the problem persists.

    Thank you so much for your help.
    And I'm no phone wiz by know means but for a very long year and 9 phones later imat my breaking point
    Have done zillions of hard factory resets (power volume up and bixby hold down all at once) when I get to the facorty reset its like the forth thing down on the list and push power button it does what its suppose to do but nothing changes(I'm living in a very bad syfi movie)
    Then the other day I noticed at the bottom of the reset screen this message
    #fail to openrecoverty cause no such file or directory
    reboot recovery cause unknownsupport single SKU
    File base OTA
    Supported Api3
    Error libffs. mgr fetching verity device # no such device or address
    couldn't get verity device #
    error removing device mapping no such device or address

    Since the problem persists after factory resets, it could be something that keeps getting reinstalled, or it could be some piece of malware that was installed to the system root. In the latter situation, you'd have to reinstall the firmware. You can do that with Smart Switch (http://www.sammobile.com/forum/showthread.php?t=29914) or Odin (http://forums.androidcentral.com/amb...interface.html).
