Hey everyone,

 

I know many of our Community members have a Samsung smartphone and/or tablet, and some of you may have noticed a strange notification on your phone today saying only “1” from the Samsung Find My Mobile app. We wanted to reassure you this was an internal test by Samsung and this notification was sent in error. See this tweet from Samsung UK for confirmation.

Speaking of Samsung and notifications, if you have ever had a notification that has disappeared or you swiped it away before you could read it, then you can install the official ‘Good Lock’ app from the Galaxy Store, and through that you can install ‘NotiStar’ which logs every notification your phone receives, so you can look back and see what it was.

 

Pro Tip: The Good Lock app also has other great features like lock screen customisation, additional clock faces, task changer appearance, change your quickpanel appearance, and more.

I have no affiliation whatsoever with O2 or any subsidiary companies. Comments posted are entirely of my own opinion. This is not Customer Service so we are unable to help with account specific issues.

Thanks @Martin-O2 , I had that on both phones when I woke up this morning and wondered what the heck it was all about. No doubt it will be on the tablet and Kindle when I check thumbsup

No problem guys! I think there were a lot of confused Samsung owners this morning so it's great we're able to provide an explanation.

Samsung have owned up that this 'mistake' was in actual fact a data breach.
