mysterious message with photo from my own phone

My husband has an Android phone and is not very knowledgeable on its use.  This morning he got some king of popup message that had a picture of him and a message that asked it the picture was of interest to him.  Or some similar message.  He clicked yes and the message disappeared entirely.    I could not find any message on his phone.  I did go back and look at his google pictures on the phone and a picture from 2017 is the one he got.   

So, what is going on?  Some kind of trick?   Sorry I don't have more or better information.

marthasamsung Thank you for reaching out here on this platform. I'm sorry to learn this happened to your husband. I'm not sure what happened. It is important that your husband not click on messages from unfamiliar individuals to avoid problems in the future. Is his phone working or is he having issues? -Dolores
