I am new to Android and I haven't ever seen this notification before on my phone since I rooted. Will allowing this Samsung account update mess my phone up? I've seen other people ask what it is, but with no definitive answer to this specific question.

I can't post links because I am new but if you look at imgur bMIV8Xc.png you can see the notification I am seeing.

I got this message today, too. I went ahead and allowed it to update. So far, I still have root and everything's running fine.

On s5 or s5 active. Also was it a full update or patch?

Nope you're good. It's just to update your samsung account. I did it too yesterday and no problems at all. Besides they really give you no choice because eventually it will just push to phone
