OnePlus also apologized for the spammy behavior and added that it will investigate the internal fault and disclose more info about the same on a later date. They are gibberish messages with random characters and it created panic among the community until OnePlus made a decision to clear the air with an official reply. This was all a big testing error.
OnePlus' newest premium users, the OnePlus 7 Pro owners were today greeted with the strangest scare as they received a couple of spam notifications out of nowhere.
In the letter the company states, "As soon as we noticed the mistake, we performed a round of in-depth investigations with the related teams to identify the cause". Due to an error during the testing process, we accidentally pushed a routine test message to some of our OnePlus 7 Pro OxygenOS users.
So, if you were alarmed to see a pair of notifications on your phone that didn't make any sense, it sounds like you can breathe a sigh of relief. OnePlus says that it used Google Firebase Cloud Messaging to send the notification and that customers' personal data was not at risk. Additionally, the company is implementing a new process to ensure this can not happen again.
Are these push notifications normal?
If you think you might have missed that during setup, head into Settings System Experience improvement programs to turn on or off any of those three.
