Just started getting repeated notifications to turn on offline finding. There doesn't seem to be any way to turn these notifications off. It's almost time to replace my phone, it's like Samsung is trying to convince me not to get another one of theirs.

Hi Everyone, these notifications are indeed very frustrating. The below did the trick for me, not getting these non-stop notifications anymore. Hope it works for you too.

Thank you, this seems to have resolved. Why did I have to go to last page to find solution? Why is the solution marked as submitting an error log when this was desired/planned functionality, NOT an error? They sure do care about user xp these guys. It just cracks me up that I had to turn the feature ON first in order to turn the notifications OFF.

Where is this? 

I have 3 options on the phone for Find My Mobile and all are non-functional.  In other words, you can't change the settings.

Same. I'm on the S20 FE 5G so none of these suggestions are appearing on my phone.

This is ridiculous to the point where I'm considering returning the phone.

Mine already show Find My Mobile grayed out and off. Still getting notifications. If they know this is a problem why haven't they bothered to fix it. We can't be the only ones going nuts with this.

This didn't work for me, perhaps because the screens didn't look the same on my phone. Is it possible to make this a simple, step by step process?

I just tried this. I certainly hope it works. These notifications have been driving me crazy. It is a shame that Samsung couldn't tell us how to fix this or have a toggle feature already sent in an update. Thank you so much.

This does work if you have a Samsung account set up.

 

If you don't have a Samsung account though, you CANNOT disable these notifications.

 

Beyond annoying, and extremely suspicious that you want my data and permissions just so I can disable a tracker.

I guess this is my last Samsung.   I think I'm going to start using burners, crikey
