Problem:
All of a sudden, I am getting this super annoying "Drink More Water" reminder pop up a few times every day!

What I've Done To Resolve This:
After doing a search of this section and even searching Google for "How to remove drink water pop up"; nothing comes up here, and the stuff that comes up in Google is basically telling you to remove the "drink more water app"...

I haven't downloaded ANY water related apps, set any reminders, or changed any settings on any of my fitness apps recently.

Even after checking through all my apps (including system apps) I have nothing closely related to a "drink more water" app or any new, suspicious apps.

I'll upload a screenie the next times it pops up.

Current Setup:
July 2019 security patch as well as the July 2019 factory image, rooted, Ex Kernel.

Hopefully someone has experienced this and it's an easy fix.

TIA for any and all help

Is it coming from your calendar?

A couple of weeks ago, a security flaw in Google Calendar started to be exploited. Basically, you could get a meeting invitation through Gmail (containing spam content) and it would automatically be added to your calendar. A meeting reminder would then trigger a calendar notification with the spam content.

Not sure if this is what you are seeing but you could check your Google calendar and see if it has some spam meetings. The security flaw has since been fixed by Google.
