I received a notification on 05/15/2023 at 11:35 pm from find my mobile... retrieve calls and messages... said I needed to allow call log and sms permissions for Smart Things Find. I have never used Find My Mobile. Was this notification because someone was tracking me and wanted access to my call logs and messages. Also when I looked at all the permissions for find my mobile I came across one that I did not see in the overview of app in store under what permissions to run. It was listed as.... Com.samsung.android.oneconnect.permissions.SEND_ANONYMOUSSESSION_RESULT..... is this some way of being tracked??

You are not being tracked. Find My Mobile is the Samsung equivalent of Find My iPhone on Apple devices. The reason you got that notification is because they added a new feature which allows you to retrieve your call logs and text messages in the event that you lost your phone.

Ok well I tried to go under find my mobile and retrieve the call log/sms and it gave me an error message. Also can you explain the permission I explained about the anonymous session. Thank you
