Bug? "Fake connection" with just a white screen pops up on itself

So I have this weird issue since today where a "fake connection" pops up completely by itself and just shows a white screen. This happens especially often during remote sessions to my home PC today.

Is this a bug? Or why does this happen?

Free Version 12.0.75813 running on Windows 10 (Build 14393)

    Dear EpicLPer,

    Thank you for your message.

    This screen can appear if you select the + symbol on the taskbar of the session, this will attempts to open a new connection and prompt the computers and contacts window to allow you to select another person/device to connect to.

    If you have any further questions, do not hesitate to contact us.

    Thank you for participating in the community.

    Best regards,

    But it appears randomly, without me even coming near the + symbol.
