Hello all, just wondering if anyone else has had this happen. On my galaxy s23, a lot of the time when unlocking the phone using the fingerprint, upon unlocking, an app on the phone will automatically open. It's always an app that happens to be on the main screen, so it's as if my thumb is touching the app from having used the fingerprint to  unlock the phone, but it's not. Sometimes it's an app that's on the main screen,  but my thumb wasn't even close to. Anyone else have this happen? Anyone have a solution? Thanks so much in advance!

I have the same issue on my S23 too! Intermittently when I unlock using finger print, it auto opens a random app ... mostly facebook! Not sure if it's purely linked to the apps on the homescreen or not.

This is so annoying! Is this definitely linked to something to do with One UI?

Same thing here but for me it's the camera app. I have it on my home screen right down corner.
