Hi NekoMM
Greetings! I am Vijay, an Independent Advisor. I am here to work with you on this problem.

This update has been released last week only to give this screen - https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/b...

Let's try following - Open any Office product say Word > File > Options > Trust Center > Trust Center Settings > Privacy options > Can you uncheck both the options and restart Word > See whether this message comes or not. If not coming, you can go to Privacy options again and check them and restart Word. See whether this message appears or not.

Please report back me the results so that I can advise further steps if your problem is not solved.
Best regards
Vijay Verma

Vijay -

I took the steps you proposed above, and it did not get rid of the popup.  Additionally, it made matters worse in that now that every time I go into Outlook, Word, etc., I get a warning bar near the top that says "RESTART REQUIRED Restart Office to apply changes to your privacy settings".  

Attempting now to try to enter into privacy options, I cannot get there and instead I get a popup box which says "Restart Office to apply changes to your privacy settings".  

It appears I am now caught in a circular loop.  Please advise!

I am having the same problem.  At first it was in outlook only.  Tried to run a repair and my entire office 365 was trashed and I had to do another install to get it back.  Now I get the same pop up everytime I open any office product which I do many times over each day and is super annoying.  Cannot get rid of the popup and scared to try another repair.

Robert - I have moved ahead with deleting my Office 365 (after closing my .pst files and saving everything) and am now in the process of reinstalling it.  If you would like, let me know and i will respond with how i make out.  As best as i can figure, this may be the best path forward.  I know you basically did the same, but ill keep my fingers crossed for now.

Having said that, I am pretty convinced Microsoft may have pooched this upgrade for Office 365 (which i think came in yesterday).  We are now going to be the only ones complaining about it.  I know i will be getting on social media myself if my repair is not successful.

I get the same since Microsoft did the update to change the look of Office 365. However the message appears for me on opening up all of office, ie Excel, Word, Publisher, Outlook. No matter which options i select it always pops back up again. Online repair didnt fix it - guessing its a bug but it s a frigging annoying one!

Windows 10 v1809 (Retail version)

I got a hold of Microsoft yesterday.  They admitted they have heard from others and recognize the problem.  Supposed to be working on it and will let me know today.  I mentioned there was already a thread started and that they should look at it for more information.  Stay tuned.

i fid tell them I use a Windows 10 Dell XPS laptop in case this bug is hardware specific.  Everyone might was to chime in with their hardware and OS also, hopefully to narrow this one down.

Thanks Adam, it's happening to me as well with all of my Office products. I'm running Office 2019 on a Dell XPS 13, Windows 10. I don't believe this to be hardware related as it just started for me on yesterday and I've been running the software for a while now. Please let us know if they reply or if you get a solution.
