Find My Mobile is the bundled app from SAMSUNG.

Goto Settings -> "Lock screen and security" and you will see "Find My Mobile" in the SECURITY section.

I guess that the notification is to ask you to sign on / sign up for a SAMSUNG account so that your smartphone can be protected by "Find My Mobile".
