Samsung sent push alerts from Find My Mobile to users all over the world. The owners of Galaxy smartphones have messages with two digits “1”.
The company said it sent messages randomly during the tests. This did not affect the operation of the devices.
The Find My Mobile app allows smartphone owners to remotely locate devices and back up data, as well as erase some of them.
Some Twitter users said they were scared from these notifications. They suggested that their phones were hacked.

Found that my phone sent this code, although I never activated this application, and I’m scared.
Yeah same here on Galaxy Note 9. I thought my phone had been hacked or something. Glad to know it wasn't.— os30 (@os30) February 20, 2020
Same thing on Galaxy Note 9. I thought that my phone was hacked or something like that. Glad to know that this is not so.
