Hello! After managing to loose my s9 and it being returned (thank you!) i stopped tracking however on my phone im getting the message 'Find my mobile' Location Tracking turned on every few minutes. As far as i can tell the Find my phone website reports that tracking is off.

 

Any ideas ? Thanks!

Hi

 

Possibly you've sent so many requests that the server got flooded, possibly. Please give your phone a simple restart, the messages should be gone in a day or two. Nice to learn that you've gotten your phone back!

 

Thanks ☺

Hi,

 

I have already tried to restart, it doesn't work unfortunately 😞

 

Do you have any other possible solutions?

 

Thanks a lot

Hello ☺

 

@benji111 

 

Kindly check if what apps are using the Location service.

 

Please go to Settings > Google > Location. 

 

Under Location, please tap improve location then set to off the WiFi and Bluetooth scanning.

 

Please turn off as well the Location there.

 

Thanks ☺

Hello. I have exactly the same problem. I played with the "Find My Mobile" thing that comes preinstalled with the S9... I just wanted to know how it works basically. Since I yesterday, no matter what I do, location services keeps turning on, along iwth the GPS - completly ignores all my preferences. I've denied every app installed location, unchecked location in the settings menu, covered bassically everything. I've even denied Google Play Services right to change system settings! 15 minutes later, I get a pop-up: "Location services turned on". Please help...it's driving me crazy.

I had this issue on my S7. Nothing worked. I had to reset my phone to get rid of it.  Very inconvenient, but its gone (along with some stuff I forgot to back up). Samsung can do better as its even affecting much newer phones.

Go to "findmymobile" home site -> Track location -> click "Start" again and then "Cancel". That should solve your problem.
