I read about that earlier today.
That's one of the pre-installed bloatware apps that come in brand new Dells which are basically useless or unneeded.
Besides saving money, that's one reason why I buy refurbished Dells - no pre-installed bloatware.

This is one of the reasons why, as a sysadmin, I smoke cigarettes, drink coffee, and have the occasional dram 🤦‍♂️

Well to be fair, SupportAssist is a decent tool, but probably seldom used by the more advanced users.
