Do you own a Samsung phone? If you happen to own a Samsung smartphone and you have recently received a mysterious notification then don’t freak out, every Galaxy phone around the world mistakenly received the same notification from the Find My Phone app.
As far as the mysterious notification was concerned, it wasn’t anything serious but just a simple digit 1 placed above another similar digit 1. And whenever you pressed the notification, it didn’t lead the user to any particular screen but instead, the notification just vanished.
However, according to a survey performed indicates that the Reddit and Twitter got immensely flooded with a large variety of messages from different users owning the Samsung Galaxy devices.
Here’s a snapshot showing what the mysterious notification actually looked like:
As far as Samsung itself is concerned, it sent out the following tweet on Twitter by saying,
“The problem occurred on a limited number of Galaxy devices.”
They further said,
“This notification was confirmed as a message sent unintentionally during an internal test and there is no effect on your device. Samsung apologizes for any inconvenience this may have caused to our customers and will work to prevent similar cases from occurring in the future.”
Hence, there isn’t anything that you should be basically be concerned about on the arrival of such mysterious notification. According to Samsung, it was just an internal glitch which has been pretty much sorted.
They claim that they are working together to ensure that such a problem doesn’t re-occur again.
As per why owners of Samsung got concerned, it was because of a previous event that took place with the OnePlus owners. They received a similar notification on their phones with Chinese characters which didn’t make any sense. Same as Samsung, they also confirmed that it was only a mistake that took place during an internal test. Henceforth, there’s a chance that the issue is of a similar nature.
Whether humor or an honest error, mistakes as such still raise the flag for smartphone owners and send them in an array of worries. We hope that it isn’t anything serious, and believe it won’t happen again.
