IllusionSector Posted October 28, 2012 Share Posted October 28, 2012 Hi folx. First post. I've been getting this weird notification, which, upon tapping, presents me with some registration box prompting me for email address and password. There is no title or label on the box indicating what app or service it came from but the email field is pre-filled with one of my email addressed. I tried entering in every conceivable email and password combination I've got in order, by method of elimination, to try and figure out what it belongs to but every time, after a brief progress spinner with the message Authenticating..., it says: The password is not correct. Please try again. I contacted both the manufacturer and the carrier and neither recognized this box. The possibility of it being some a phishing thing occurred to me but then, I haven't downloaded apps from any questionable sources, where I potentially could've caught something. After I clear the notification it reappears a while later. I haven't managed to get the pattern down. I'll try to provide as much information as possible. Hope it helps.Currently I have the following services/service-based apps on my phone that require a sign-in. Most are a combination of username and password as opposed to email and password. Moreover, I'm successfully logged in to each and every one, so there are no sign-in errors for any of them to notify me of: Chase Mobile GMX Mail Google account (Chrome, g+, Gmail, Play, Talk, YouTube, etc) Facebook & Facebook Messenger Flickr Last.fm Samsung Skype Vimeo WordPress I can't imagine the following info being of any help but here's a list of apps that came pre-installed on my phone: Kies air AT&T Messages Flipboard Google Play services Google+ Google Play Music Google Play Books Maps Street View on Google Maps AllShare Play YP Local Search & Gas Prices myAT&T AT&T Navigator: GPS navigation AllShareCast Dongle S/W Update ChatON Google Search Media Hub - Samsung Google Play Movies & TV Galaxy Choice Here's a list of apps that I custom-installed: Asphalt 6: Adrenaline Bad Piggies HD Adobe AIR Chrome Facebook Facebook Messenger Flickr Last.fm GMX Mail MAME4droid (0.37b5) Perfect Viewer Pool Master Pro Moai FLV Player Skype - free IM & video calls Speedtest.net SuperGNES Lite (SNES Emulator) Vimeo WordPress Lastly, here's the list of apps in my library that were removed/canceled: Asphalt 7: Heat FLV Video Player MAME4droid Reloaded (0.139) Wind-up Knight Thank you so much for any help.
