    Actually, this has been occurring for months. I tried to tolerate it but it became annoying.

    So once in a while, I get a notification with the phrase "Disable Harmful App"
    With the subtext: "ForeignOnLineApplication" can damage your device.

    When I click 'disable' the notification just disappears for a while. But after a while (an hour or so) the notification comes up again.
    I've tried to go to Settings and disable this 'app' but it seems like there's no uninstall option

    I've tried Factory Reset but it just returned. It's a persistent thing and it is very annoying.

    Welcome to Android Central! The next time you see the notification, swipe down the notification panel and long-press the notification. Then tap App Info, and tell us which app is giving the notification.

    Sorry, but did you post the original question, or are you just experiencing something similar?

    I'm not sure what you mean -- are you saying that long-pressing the notification and tapping App Info tells you it's the Galaxy Apps store or the Google Play Store that's responsible for the notification?

    Hmm -- so the Play Store is giving you a notification that "Galaxy Apps" is a potentially harmful app? If it's coming from the Play Store, then I would guess it's due to Google Play Protect. If you have the Galaxy Apps Store app installed, was it preinstalled, or did you have to install it yourself?

    i have had the app for ages. It may have been a corrupted update, so I did the suggested fix and now it is ok. I know up to this event now tv had crashed a lot and clash of clans had to have an optional update applied. Now TV no longer crashes. No more notifications
