    Yesterday while I was connected to a public wifi hotspot, it appear a widget with the usual postal envelope icon with a number indicating an unread message,
    There I clicked on it and it is open the browser to a link which began with
    "free.secure-link.co", where I was invited to download an update for my phone model
    (with the exact name of my phone: Lumia 1520).
    Since I did not know how to make a screenshot, so I got to take a picture.

    I do not mind so much the internet page because I didn't click on it.
    But I wonder why I have appeared unlikely that widget,
    and if the "code" that caused it is still in my phone, or if the phone itself is somehow infected.
    On the web I can't find anything.
    Do you think I should do a factory or some other solution?
    this could keep the original applications (Office)?
    For now I'm avoiding to connect to the wifi or network.

    I wouldn't worry at all at this point. I believe that it was merely a popup attempting to trick you into something.

    Updates are not delivered that way either. It was sketchy, but I'd move on and be more wary on that specific hotspot.

    Thanks xandros9...
    I will follow your suggestion and I will advise the hotspot company.
