This is likely not a S21-specific question, but I have no idea where to ask this.
I have installed Microsoft Family safety on my phone and set up 3 family members. Location notifications aren't working, but that's nor relevant for now.
I'm getting 30-40 notifications a day (Settings>Notifications>Advanced Settings>Notification History) of "Family Safety is using your location." At first, I thought this was Family Safety specific. Installed Life360. Get 40-60 "Life360 is using your location" notifications a day. BTW, these are not exaggerations. Find My Kids app does the same thing expect I only get 10-20/day.
On each of these notifications I get an audible notifications. No popup on phone or Watch3. None of those notifications show up when I swipe down on my home screen. Only visible in Notification History. Any way to, at minimum, silence these notifications?
Solved! Go to Solution.
That was my initial thought and it could still be correct. But, when I get the same hidden alarm in 3 different apps, I'm not certain.
You can do that with any app constantly showing up in your status/notification bar
I have 4 GPS location apps on my phone - Life360, Ring, Maps, Family safety. As part of my experimentation, I 'forced stop' on all 4. That stopped the mystery notifications.
The interesting part of that is, when I enable one at a time, the mystery notifications return.Doesn't matter which one I enable (leaving the others disabled), the notifications return. Even more interesting, using my phone settings, I go Settings>Apps>pick-one-of-4-apps>Notifications, and set to Silent. Still I get the notifications. Only way I've found to silence them is 'Force Stop' all 4.
