    All Samsung phones using Android 10 and possibly others as well are now completely insecure. When receiving a call, hang up and before the lock screen appears hit the display running apps button on the bottom right. You can now access all the data on this phone. I contacted Samsung after my data was stolen and contacts and email messed with and they gave me a "So sorry we cannot help and thank-you for telling us".

    never had any issues with my note 10+, i guess i never handed my phone to anybody who needed to make a call. just do not blindly hand the phone to anyone and walk away.

    The point was that if it is stolen the thief can receive a call and unlock the phone and steal data and then turn it completely off. This goes against the purpose of the find your phone feature.

    on my note 10+ you can answer the phone without unlocking it, but if you want to do anything else you need to unlock the phone.......and i mean anything. if you hit the "display running apps", my phone will ask for a fingerprint before it will allow you to do anything else.

    curious as to which sammy phone you have?

    I have to wonder what security the OP has on the phone... fingerprint, face, PIN, pattern, password?

    actually my phone will not even unlock after a phone call. i can't even use the "apps running" feature as it is not an actual button like on some of the older phones or maybe even lower based sammy phones. so i think your issue @Evan Gyde is just with your phone....whatever model sammy you have.

    maybe its time for an upgrade? something more secure.
