    Default Security Assistance - SOS

    Hi guys,

    I had this feature turned on. It's supposed to alert your primary contacts that you need help by pushing the power button 3 times.

    However it has gone off three times unintentionally. My fingers accidentally press the button or slide by it and it goes off. This is very odd.
    One time it was in my bag and when I took it out, I can see it sent out SOS to my primary contacts.

    Anyone else have this problem? I have since turned this function off. It's too bad, really thought it was a good add on. :-(

    Where are the settings for this feature? I even searched it to no avail.

    Funny you post this because I FREAKED my mother out today when it sent her the SOS by accident today. You have to press the power button three times quickly to activate it.

    It's under quick settings.

    Ok so I'm not the only one freaking my contacts out. I hope they fix this. Are you going to turn it off?

    No. I have epilepsy so it's actually a good thing to have for me.
