Panic? Why would anyone panic? Anyway, yep I had this too on my S10 plus. I dismissed it and didn't think any more of it.


My advice comes from being a UK Samsung phone user.
Current Devices:

Samsung S21 Ultra 5G 256Gb > Model: SM-G998B/DS.
Samsung Galaxy Watch4 Classic > Model: SM-R890NZSAEUA.
Samsung Galaxy Buds2 > Model: SM-R177NZKAEUA.

Yes I got that Find My Phone  notification  too on my  S10 but did not worry too much after checking it  :smiling-face:

 

However  some customers were concerning about hacking and a few going spare on social media.  Anyway Samsung will work to try and prevent a similar occurence.   https://www.theverge.com/2020/2/20/21145130/samsung-find-my-mobile-app-1-notification-galaxy

My tweet to Samsung was included on the Verge and Android Central. My Twitter notifications have been going nuts!
