Unauthorized factory reset

I have an S20 plus 5G. The other day I took my phone out of my pocket and saw that a factory reset had been started. There was no way to cancel so I had to go through the process and then go through painful restore process. It was locked in my pocket or so I thought.

 

Any idea what caused this and how to avoid it in the future?

Lots of conspiracies related to 5g. Believe them or not, the aholes want to control every thing.

The only thing I can think of is that someone got a hold of your account information for samsung find my mobile or Google find device and reset it that way.

Register your thumbprint to open your phone. Accidental touch by finger usually happens when putting the phone to the pocket or taking it out. Happens to me several times I'm dialing my contacts accidentally or ordering something from retailers.
