confirmation prompt


Explanation:
I disagree with the chosen answer. "Confirmation message" is wrong. A "confirmation message" does not require input from the user. It's literally just a message (usually with just an OK button) i.e., it is INFORMATIVE.

A "confirmation prompt", on the other hand, is literlally ASKING the user ('Abfrage') whether they want to perform a certain operation. A "confirmation prompt" tyically has a "Yes" and a "No" button so that the user can respond to the prompt.

Good luck anyway.
