I’m getting the pop ups saying “***** is enjoying this. Is it safe so say they like it” from sims NOT in my current household. 
it’s only been for fitness so far when they’ve been jogging past my house and it has been people in my played households, just not the household I am currently playing.

@xjodielaura If you say yes, does your active Sim get it or actually the Sim the message is for ?

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:Microsoft XBOX One
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.42
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All expansions. All GPs MINUS Batuu and Realm of magic Most stuff packs MINUS Mischino, Fitness, Romantic Garden, and one other i can't recall. No kits.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Create a household of 2 or 3 siblings. Make each sibling have a child or teen. Save the family. Let them live a Sim day together. Divide all siblings and their children into different households-different lots. Go to manage households. Mark 1/2 or 2/3 HH unplayed'. You only have 1 main played HH now. Wait 1 Sim day. Maybe even a couple of sims hours.
What happens when the bug occurs? You will get a pop-up concerning someone from your previously divided unplayed' HH. So-and-so has fishing as their middle name. Does So-and-so like fishing? I think it should only be asked to immediate played HH.
What do you expect to see? No pop-ups about HH I have marked as unplayed.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? On console - never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. May 27, 2021 patch

@sierrawillkill Same here! I played for two hours and got the pop up at least 7 times. Most of them were for played households (just not active). I clicked NO each time cause I wanted to get more info on the sim before committing them lol.

Can confirm I'm also having this problem on PC - households that are in my played households are giving me popups for likes/dislikes when I'm not playing them.

@xjodielaura Thanks for sharing this.  I'm seeing it too on PC and I don't like it.  My sim is at the Waterside Warbler for karaoke night.  Within just a few minutes, I got at least five popups about unplayed sims I created.  They were all about whether or not they like fitness, even though none of them are doing anything fitness related.  The funny thing is, I expected a popup for my sim about whether or not he likes singing but no.

 

Someone please make it stop! Standard smile

@JonaO703 Yeah I’m getting them more for sims outside my house than I am for ones in it! Most of mine have been fitness ones but I had one for fishing as well when someone was fishing outside my lot
