You should take heed to the last part of the message and report this to the vendor.
I can think of a couple reasons for that warning.
1. You picked up a virus
2. Your phone was hacked
3.your phone security has somehow been shut off.

Contact the manufacturers customer support from a different phone.
Tell them about that notice.
They will run a trouble shooting scan on the device.

Helpful?
