    When I got up this morning, I had 2 Find My Mobile notifications, in the drop down bar.
    Does anyone know why they would pop up? Can someone be remotely trying to track my phone or access it?
    And yes, I do have that app enabled, just in case it gets lost.

    Problem solved. Found out it was Samsung doing a 'test'. Seems THOUSANDS of others got the same thing.

    So late last night I got a notification from Find My Mobile, and thought it was a weird one, but assumed it was some sort of glitch. It did make me a bit paranoid at first b/c the night before I got a notification from Google that someone was trying to sign in to my account in Korea.

    Yeah, mine was just a 1 with a few spaces and another one. Tapping on it did nothing.

    Yeah, I'm more concerned with the Google notification saying somebody tried to sign into my account from Korea. It was a neat notification though. I could deny access straight from the notification, and it had a timer that showed how long it had been since the attempted sign in occurred.

    I'm not gonna lie though, getting both those notifications within 24 hours of each other had me shook. LOL

    I would think Samsung find my device gave that based on Samsung from Korea and they sent that test out by accident. It will warn u the location when something like that happens.

    Both me and the wife's phones got it last night too. I assumed it was an automatic Galaxy Store update for Find My Mobile, but it did freak me out a little at first.

    I have been ordered by a Trusted Member to ask my question here although it is non-related!

    "Find my mobile" does not seem to be working on my S10 when I search on my laptop - I'm told that there are no registered devices. It did work in the past and this option is set to ON. I am logged into the same Samsung account on phone and laptop ... I only have one account anyway. I wonder if anyone could advise what I may have done wrong.

    Many thanks.
