Galaxy phone users around the world Wednesday received a mysterious notification from the Find My Mobile app that simply read "1" with an additional "1" below it.

About three hours after the global incident, Samsung admitted that the notifications were sent unintentionally during an internal test.

Since Samsung's Find My Mobile service allows users to remotely locate or lock their devices as well as block access to Samsung pay, Galaxy owners began to panic when they received the mysterious notification.

Samsung's official UK support account sent out a tweet saying the notification will not have any effect on the devices.
