    Finally just decided to go through the reset. Took a few hours to finally get where I needed to be (thanks for nothing Kies). Then I came back here and see it's coming back. Hope this doesn't happen to me.

    Looks like Samsung is working on a fix for it.

    I just updated to Android 4.3 and I just haven't installed Knox so I don't have this problem...

    Factory reset seems to have worked for me, so far. No security notifications for about 8 hours.

    My first factory reset, on the other hand, has not gone smoothly. Google-stored wifi passwords are not restoring; misunderstood Nova Launcher's backup file storage location and lost it, etc. Argh.

    Did not install Knox initally because I did not know much about it but the security warnings started appearing anyway.

    I have tried resetting to factory setting again and again plus rooting, but still face the same problem and that silver shield won't let me customize my phone application even after I rooted it.
    very frustrating. Please help if anyone know how to solve it.
    But I think installing the latest custom rom 4.3.1 may be able to solve it.

    Knox comes with the 4.3 update. You have no choice, it is installed on your device... Settings > More tab > Application manager > All tab > scroll down to the K's... two Knox installs (one a shortcut), Knox Notification Manager, and Knox Store... they are probably all there. The notification shows up for us right now when we connect our phones to a Wifi.

    Currently I'm just going to Force Stop the warning after a reboot, then I don't see it again until I have to reboot again... so it probably will not show up again for at least another week or so.

    FYI. I did a factory reset last night and haven't had this security issue since.

    Not the ideal fix, but it seems to have fixed the issue.

    I good factory reset after an update doesn't hurt, and it's actually recommended.

    This was @VZWsupport's response:
    @VZWSupport That screen shot is helpful! It's not a WiFi error. Have you visited the website in the message? It describes Samsung's KNOX,which is a security program in your phone. That site has the details on how to contact Samsung if you run into trouble.^JH

    Just hold the notification down, click 'app info.' Then clear the cache and data and it should stop until you reboot again.

    Performed a FDR yesterday, but waited to post until I was sure. Notification has not returned. Have rebooted my phone 2-3 times just to be sure.

    maybe I'm extremely lucky, but I haven't seen this occurance once. KNOX is definately on my phone, but no happenings of this sort on my phone. not too crazy about the haptic feedback of notifications though. everytime i pick up my phone, any updates to facebook, twitter, email, etc, i get the little "bzzz" in my hand. I'm sure i can turn it off, if I knew exactly what it was.

    It's a setting you can turn off.

    Settings>my device tab>motion and gestures>click on motion>turn smart alert off.

    Ok

    Done a Full Factory Reset, both ways that I know how. And Cleared the Cache Partition as well..

    Done this 3 times. Still get the notification when switching from Mobile to Wifi.

    Ive also tried clearing the Data and Cache for the Knox notification manager.. It clears the notification, but as soon as you switch from Wifi to Mobile or Mobile to Wifi, It comes back.

    I consider myself fairly Android Savvy. but this one has me baffled on to why some people are able to get it to clear and others are not.

    verizon walked me through the factory reset and i still was getting it. However after long clicking going to the app, force stopping and clearing all data, its gone. immediately after, i turned wifi off and back on and still not there. I also turned my phone off and back on and it still hasnt appeared.

    I believe it may be quite some time before VZW/Sammy roll out a fix for this, if ever...I'm sure they're just as baffled, particularly as to how to fix it.

    Sidenote: I believe the OTA update for the Sprint S4 starting rolling out today. Will be interested to see if any of them experience the same issue.

    Samsung support acknowledged the issue. Hopefully that's a good sign.

    UGH... went and bought the stupid backup pro, found out it doesn't work that great and apparently half my cap didn't save, did the reset and got the dang update policy bug. This definitely isn't working for everybody. Based on my experience if you are on the fence, do NOT do a reset.

    Thanks man for the heads up. I too am waiting for another solution as I don't want to do a factory reset that might not work

    Actually, the APK is there but you must open the app (from app drawer) to download the 100+ MB app
