Is this text message legit?

Received this text message yesterday. I don't think it's legitimate, but I'm not certain. Has anyone else received one of these?

There's been a few reports on these forums reporting getting that same text message.  I would find it suspicious why a text message would be sent as opposed to an email.  It may be some kind of scheme to piggy back on an email many did get recently about upgrading email security which also looked suspicious but turned out to be legit.  That had a link which to Use OAuth or secure mail key for email apps article.
