    On my Galaxy Sky this morning

    Anyone else get this? Trying to figure out where it came from. It says 'safe and secure'. Yeah, I should just take their word for it.

    Did you turn on WiFi and receive any updates/notifications to install them?

    Does your phone have anything under settings - software to check for updates manually?

    I don't own a Galaxy Sky.

    I don't own a Galaxy Sky.
    WiFi was on but never received notifications for installation.

    No, I have it checked to do auto-update. I see that it was last updated 8/10/17, today.

    And as october262 said, his sammy did update also.

    One would think, however, that in the text, it would say who is doing what update. But I am prolly asking too much.

    similar to it, mine said to connect wifi connection to download/install the update.
    look under about device - software update is where it updated on mine.

    The "It's safe and secure" part sure seems suspicious. If legit, they really should phrase this better!

    There could be hackers timing out attacks to coincide with legit updates. If we aren't all getting exactly the same message (on Samsung phones), it seems suspicious to me. But I really have no idea.

    Did you receive a txt message about the update?

    What is that "24719" and down arrow?

    Looks like we didn't find any Short Codes for you.
    Sorry about that.

    I misread it. I went under Security Policy Updates. It said Update Now and the date was yesterday. But I clicked it again and the date changed to today. So I have no idea if the message was legit.

    thanks can you clarify where exactly is "Security Policy Updates" _ can't find this my phone

    it looks like many others are saying they got the update but there is no way to confirm if update was applied or where to find the update

    What exactly does that say or show you? You guys can post screenshots to make it easier .

    What is the Android security patch level of your Skys? That would give a clue as to which got updated.

    Look under Phone - Settings - About phone or something similar
