Gmail is not asking to install a  service handler. Chrome is asking to install a service handler when an email is opened it Gmail.

You need to consider who the email is from and the subject. If you are not sure, make a phone call, send a text, or send a new email to verify it was sent by the sender. 

Here is the Chrome Help Page to help you decide if you want to install the service handler or not.
