Summary (IA Generated)

Tons of Galaxy phone owners have reported the South Korean behemoth blasted them with a confusing Find My Mobile push notification, which solely contains the letter 1 and disappears once clicked. Samsung has yet to address this bizarre occurrence with an official statement, but everything seems to point the notification was sent by accident. According to recipients, the issue affects various Galaxy models, including the brand new Z Flip foldable and the Note 10 . Android Central adds Galaxy S, Galaxy A, and Galaxy J owners also received the notification. Girlfriend and I just had exactly the same Samsung push notification: her Note 10 and my Galaxy Z Flip each alerted with a Find My Mobile notification. […] It’s not the first time a phone maker has hit users with a push notification by mistake. […] Samsung has a dotted record when it comes to questionable push notifications, too. […] We’ve reached out to Samsung for further comment, and will update this piece accordingly if we hear back. […] Update 10:02AM UTC, February 20: In an email to TNW, Samsung Benelux head of communications Michiel Dijkman said said the notification was inadvertently sent to a limited number of Galaxy devices.
