    The first time I ignored it because I wasn't on a wi-fi system. Now I'm getting it again. Plain white popup with black letters and a click-able "learn more." Options are "download & install now" and "Remind me later". Title of popup is "Security update needed". Message is "Your system is 3 days out of date. Download may occur over a cellular network causing additional cost. Update size: 185.3 MB" When it popped up about 4-5 days ago it said the exact same thing. It looks pretty suspicious to me, and I am hesitant to click on "learn more" or either of the other options. Has anyone experienced this? I have an LG G7 thinQ that has Lookout Security installed, and I ran Malware Bytes to see if anything turned up.

    Welcome to Android Central! What happens if you go to the Settings>About Phone>System Update menu? Does that notification show up there?

    Hello, The exact same thing just started last week on my Pixel 2. The odd thing is I have disabled both System Update notifications on Google Play Services as well as Automatic Updates in developer options. I'm not sure why I am seeing this?

    just go to your settings as a previous post stated and check to see if there are updates available to download and install.

    You can't disable system updates - even if you answer "no" to an update request, after a certain amount of time, the phone will update. The Pixel 2 should be on the October update now. Look in Settings > About phone > Android version. The update date should sat 2019-10-01. If it says 2019-09-whatever, it needs the October update. Do what B. Diddy suggested. (In less than 2 weeks, the November update starts rolling out. It's normally the first Monday of the month.)

    (Different manufacturers update at different times, but Google updates every month.)

    I don't want the update though, I am rooted with an unlocked bootloader so I like to control how/when my phone is updated. I am still on the Aug 2018 version and up until last week because of whatever settings I deliberately ticked my phone never notified me of an update. Now all of the sudden I am seeing this new prompt.

    In developer options there is a setting that says disable automatic updates... you are saying the phone will still update anyways? With this selected to off mine hasn't since Aug 2018. i'm still on 8.1
