    Windows 10 Security Alert Regarding a Mobile I have never owned.


    A few days ago, a message popped up on my laptop saying, 'Windows 10 Update - Do not turn your computer off' - words to that effect. I get those messages from time to time. However, after the update, my computer alerted me to a Security Alert - saying: "No Screen Pin Lock Detected on your Samsung Galaxy S8+" Well that is obvious as I only have a Samsung Galaxy S2. I am the only person who has access to my laptop and mobile phone. My S2 does have a Screen Pin Lock on it.


    I am curious to know how or where this message came from and if it is likely to cause any problems? I have not noticed any problems so far. There is an option for me to delete that message, but I thought I would play safe and see if there is anything to be concerned about first - hence why I came here. I know this is a phone issue, but it was picked up by Windows 10. Thank you.

    :)
