Galaxy phone users worldwide have received weird notification on their phones.

The notification appears to have come from Samsung’s Find My Mobile app, and simply says ‘1’.

Many confused users took to Twitter in hopes to find the hidden meaning behind the message.


Responding to the growing curiosity the company confirmed that the notification was sent unintentionally.

“Recently, a notification about “Find My Mobile 1” occurred on a limited number of Galaxy devices. This was sent unintentionally during an internal test and there is no effect on your device. We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused our customers,” Samsung tweeted.

This won’t be the first time that a smartphone firm has pushed a cryptic message to its users, OnePLus accidentally pushed out a notification containing garbled text and Chinese characters.
