Annoying "Accidental touch" notification

Is there a way to disable that annoying "Accidental touch" notifcation that explains what does this feature do?
It shows up from time to time, blocking my way to unlocking my screen, telling me that the feature is turned on and what it does...

Unfortunately I dont think it's possbile to disable just the notification. You should disable the setting all togheter. Yes, you can unlock the phone "accidently" by just slightly touching the fingerprint sensor and unlocking the phone, but is it really that bad that it unlocked when you didn't mean to? The actual annoyance of the notification is far worse than the "accidental" unlocking of the phone. It's even more annoying when you actually wanted to unlock the phone but this settings decided it was "accidental". Turn off the setting. Get rid of it! Kill it with fire!

That message telling you what Accidental Touch Protection is and how it works *is* the Accidental Touch Protection. If you use a PIN or pattern to unlock your phone, you really don't need to use the Accidental Touch Protection.

The moment I got my phone, I enabled it, it sounded like a good feature. A day later I disabled it because it is more of a hindrance and an absolute annoyance. 95% of the time it misinterprets what an "accidental touch" is.

Samsung fix please! I've just had a pocket sounding rape alarm go off on my phone!!!, and then I'm directed to the emergency services, having to explain "it's touch! protection". If it wasn't wasting emergency services time. I could see the funny side. Does anybody know where the rape alarm siren is stored? I want to delete. We got alot of strange looks!
