As helpful as the feature might be, the Samsung Galaxy “Offline finding” notification is one of the most annoying things about using these Android phones in 2021. Those who have the feature disabled will constantly be pestered by the “Turn on Offline finding?” notification. Here’s how to stop it.
How to stop the “Turn on Offline finding?” notification
To stop the “Turn on Offline finding?” notification, users must do the following:
- Tap the notification.
- Choose to not agree to the terms and conditions.
- Select the menu in the top-right corner.
- Choose “Notifications.”

Of course, this is only for users who don’t want to take advantage of the Samsung Offline Finding feature, as it does promise to “make it easier to find your lost phone even if it’s not connected.”
What is “Offline finding” on Samsung phones?
As explained in the phone’s settings, Offline Finding does the following:
“This will allow your phone to be found by other people’s Galaxy devices even when it’s not connected to a network. It will also allow your phone to be used to scan for lost Galaxy devices that may be nearby. You can also find watches and earbuds if this was the last device they connected to.”
For total privacy, users may want to avoid enabling this. However, for those who are worried about losing their Galaxy device, it may be worth trying this feature.
