I keep receiving these notifications from my calendar saying my phone might be hacked , they don't stop coming I tried force stopping the app cleared the cache and it still happens , there's no way to Uninstall the app or stop the notifications. I've only had the samsung 22+ for like 4 days I'm really tempted to go return it and switch to iPhone if the problem keeps reoccurring. Please help . Sincerely an annoyed customer

@CCampos0116 You will need to visit calendar.google.com on your computer and change the settings so that Spam won't automatically create events. See the Google help article -> https://support.google.com/calendar/answer/6084018?hl=en&co=GENIE.Platform%3DDesktop

This helped a friend of mine. Log out of everything on all devices and login to your Gmail account, setup a brand new password, enable 2 step verification, then in your Gmail settings, check your trusted devices. If any of them do not correspond to you, delete them.
