Android Notifications

Re attached image: I am suddenly getting almost continous notifications like this.
When I tap it, I am directed to my "Secure Folder" ( why here?)
I then access it via password. Then I am told that I am signed out of google and have to sign in again.
On doing this, I am returned to the home screen
This has happened 4 times in the last hour.
Does anyone out there have any idea what is happening?
Please? Thankyou John B

Hi jonbar.1

The general answer out there...............

"When you get the popup, hold your finger on it. It will then give you an option to disable and silent that particular notification"
UNIX is basically a simple operating system, but you have to be a genius to understand the simplicity.

THanks Enrique.
I didn't know that
Although I do have "Notifications" blocked in the app settings. I don't understand why I get them'

Enrique.
I have just recieved the attached.
This is what I got when I tapped and held the notification, as you suggested.

It keeps saying "Account Action Required"
Have not a clue what's happening. :think:

If I select "Details" I am directed to my "Secure Folder" When I open it, I am directed to "App Notifications"
So from this list I have turned-off ( under "Google Accounts" heading) "Account Action Required"
I was a bit reluctant to turn-off " Account Action Recommended"....always a bit scared of doing something terrible :silent:

( this is all taking place on my Samsung Phone , by the way )
