No, it's not a virus. The notification is triggered by advertisements on the webpage. Just don't click "OK" and ignore it.

What you are seeing looks like a javascript alert. As long as you don't believe the lies some websites will be feeding you, the only danger a javascript alert introduces is the possibility that a site may keep opening so many javascript alerts, that you won't be able to leave the site before another alert pops up. But a decent browser can stop that for you. ...

You can shrink a notification by pinching in horizontally on the notification. Likewise, you can expand one by pinching out horizontally. You can see this in my beautifully-drawn diagram: EDIT: You can also swipe up/down using two fingers instead of one. Thanks to eldarerathis for this addition.

These behaviors can be controlled when an app builds a notification. From my understanding, if an app wants to run continuously, it MUST put a persistent notification on the notification bar You're pretty much correct until the "notification bar" part. Both of notifications are indeed persistent (i.e. on-going, cannot be removed manually by user). Take ...

It seems to be an App which opens that dialog (over a webpage...). Try to boot into safe mode: Press and hold the power button until the power menu appears. Hold down 'Reboot'. (On phones which do not have the option to reboot press and hold 'Power off') Then your phone will reboot into safe mode. That means all your apps are deactivated for this ...

Personally, I haven't faced the issue since I rarely do two-finger swipe, but it seems this is really a bug which many have observed, and has been reported on AOSP Issue Tracker #79583. As of current writing, the issue carries on to 5.0.1 Lollipop, reproduced on Nexus devices. One claimed that the issue has gone on 5.0.1 (but didn't mention the device), and ...

On some Samsungs, they have a feature called Minute Minder. It will notify you around every minute of your phone call (it is usually 5-10 seconds before the actually minute mark). For people who don't have unlimited minutes, this allows them to easily know how many minutes have passed. For the original Galaxy S, the setting is located under Settings -> ...

Update: As of latest version, WhatsApp already uses heads-up notification natively. However, users can still use the apps listed here to display heads-up notification for other apps. If the user is already using it, don't forget to disable WhatsApp's entry to prevent double heads-up notification. At that time, it's impossible to do this directly from ...

Light Flow will do this for you. Switch of sound or vibrate for the individual apps and set them up in Light Flow. The option "too many notifications" can be used to select the maximum repeat count. Rooting is not necessary, except on some phone to alter the LED notifications. The app is capable to adjust for all notifications or depending on application: - ...

Try downloading the Android Wear app. Open it up and see if it says Emulator Connecting in the top left. If it does, go to the menu and select Disconnect Emulator and then Forget Emulator. It worked for me. I was getting the same notification.

The problem stems from the fact that Android has multiple audio channels, for different kinds of output. The Priority Notifications feature will silence any apps that try to output over the "notification" channel unless they are whitelisted, preventing their notification sounds from being played. However, not all apps actually use the proper channels. In ...

I found the solutions to this. I use the Llama Android app to modify the volume, however, unfortunately there is a bug in Android 5.0 lollipop whereas silent profiles put the device in priority notification mode, but setting the profile back to normal volume does not change the notification priority mode. There is a fix in newer yet unpublished versions of ...
