    Has anyone else seen this message pop up lately? It began popping up on my Note 8 this past weekend (Aug 8 2020) when I was out hiking, and not using WiFi. Then my wife said it's popping up on her Note 8 also!

    I have seen it in the past. Mine was happening at home, I reset my router and modem and it was fixed.

    It is a Samsung app, but you can't find it when searching for apps in the app drawer. Can't find it at the Galaxy Store either.

    I didn't see "tips", though WiFi had stopped. I've had a lot of Samsung phones and never seen that before.

    Is it a System App...one where you have to open Apps & Notifications > then select the 3 dot menu > Show System? If Samsung phones have that option

    Thank you. I didn't know one can switch on the view for system apps.
    Since posting, when the noti came up I clicked on "app info", and after numerous tried to force stop it, got it stopped, then uninstalled an update. Since then, it hasn't shown up once.
