What are you using as security on your phone?
360 security

Alright, it should also tell you what the security threat is. If you need assistance using that app, you should contact the maker of it.
It's not a app. It's firmware

I am a little confused here, 360 security sounds like Norton's and galaxy s6 edge's device security is powered by McAfee.

360 security is also the name of an app available on the play store

Have you turned on Samsung's Knox feature? It might be seeing the app as a security threat. 360 Security is an antivirus app available on Google Play. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.qihoo.security&hl=en
I have removed 360, and set up KNOX. I'm still getting a notification telling me that I have a security problem with a unotherised user.

Hold the Power button in for a few seconds and and select 'Restart phone' from the menu. Changing the security level from 'high' to 'normal' should also fix the problem. [b]High- Blocks all unauthorized actions. For each such action, you will see an access denial message and be able to stop unauthorized apps. [b]Normal- Blocks only unauthorized actions against the essential system resources: kernel, container, and so on. https://www.samsungknox.com/en/faq/my-device-displayed-notification-%E2%80%9Cunauthorized-actions-have-been-detected-restart-your-phone To check the SE (Security Enhancements) status, go to: Settings > About device. The SE status, which is called 'SELinux Status' on some devices can be set to either: [b]Enforcing - SE for Android is enforcing the loaded policy. Your device is actively protected from security threats and malicious apps will be denied access. [b]Permissive - The SE for Android policy file is loaded, but your device is not enforcing it. If a malicious app tries to access a resource that it is not allowed to, the access will be logged but not prevented. This mode is intended for testing and debugging. It generates log files of denied app and allows Samsung to identify new app threats and update its policy files. [b]Disabled -The SE for Android infrastructure is not enabled, and there is no policy file loaded. Log files are not generated and your system is vulnerable to security threats.

I've just read an article over on the XDA Developer website regarding this error and according to one poster, Samsung reports that there is no fix for this problem. A new S6 Edge was delivered to Leanne and she reports that the 'unauthorized actions detected error' message is no longer appearing on her new phone. http://forum.xda-developers.com/galaxy-s6-edge/help/unauthorized-actions-detected-error-t3121228/page2 (see posts 16, 18, 20, 23 under leanne).
