Default Security Policy Updating Without Permission?

Every time I power on my phone I get notifications telling me, "Your security policy has been updated to the latest version. No further action is needed." It gives me this notification every couple hours for a few days then goes away. I have auto update turned off and I have it set to only update on Wi-Fi networks (I keep my phone on LTE at all times to prevent stuff like this). WTF is this?! Is AT&T trying to screw me again?

Go to settings and the last tab.

This is located in security.

Click it and uncheck automatic update.

Automatic updates is unchecked. I mentioned that in the OP.

Gave that a shot, but I still get this every couple of hours



What exactly are these security policy updates? Are they just updates for whatever protects my phone against malware it may contract by visiting sketchy websites?

I'm not entirely sure. I never get those notifications.

I am using a custom ROM though... Try seeing what they are through a Google search.

It looks like it has something to do with Knox. If your ROM has Knox removed then that's probably why you don't get them.

I guess I'm stuck with it until I can root again
