Some OnePlus 7 Pro owners woke up today to multiple notifications on their phones from OnePlus. While manufacturers to use the push notification system at times to share important information, the messages in questions included Chiese characters and other random letters. Those venturous enough to click on the messages were then greeted with a “browser not found” error. 

In the confusion, some wondered if OnePlus has been hacked.

Fortunately, the bizarre messages were simply a mistake. OnePlus issues a statement on Twitter, claiming that the issue was caused by the OxygenOS team. SOmeone apparently set out a global notification to some OnePlus 7 Pro owners. It’s not clear how many messages were sent out, but our OnePlus 7 Pro did not receive the messages.

The company is currently investigating what happened and will share more details when they come to light. While the random messages may have simply been annoying, we’re hoping that OnePlus puts a few extra security measures in place to ensure this doesn’t happen again.
