Pokemon GO popup

Actually I just need to know if this popup is legit. A few minutes ago I got a popup from Norton with the logo in the upper left. It starts with "Use what you've got" and then proceeds to describe fake Pokémon GO apps that Norton's mobile app can help you avoid. It ends with a yellow button saying "Protect my devices". It is green and white with white font on green areas. I found it strange since I am on a regular window's computer and don't remember registering any IOS or Android type devices. I'm not used to getting popups unrelated to info on scans, etc. on my computer.

Looks legit.  I've not seen. 
I've had Special Offer Notifications On for years.  And never, not one offer.

It's legit. We've seen some threats come through related to the subject, so we want to make sure our customers are protected.

It would be nice if the "do not show again" feature worked...

Try toggling the setting off. Restart computer and then turn back on.

@bjm_: I've mentioned that offer in this thread

Or, you (guys) can make the best of the following vids:

As for the official pop-up, you can review the following information:

... the series "Pokémon Go Cyber Security and Privacy Guidelines" addresses current cyber security risks such as Trojanized fake apps, online scams, Google privacy issues and real world scams...
