Accidental Touch Protection is an option built into the Samsung Galaxy S10 to protect the unit from pocket dialing.
Without this option enabled, the screen can accidentally select apps, dial numbers, or move about the phone’s menu.
This can be problematic as accidentally dialing someone when you are unaware is usually not good.
The phone can also move about the menu draining the battery and possibly changing settings.
The easy fix for this is to enable this option which is quick an easy to do.
How to Enable or Disable Accidental Touch Protection Galaxy S10
- Swipe down from the top of the screen and select Settings (Gear Icon)
- Select Display
- Scroll down and select Accidental Touch Protection
- Swipe the bar left or right to enable or disable the option

If the above option does not work for you and the phone keeps choosing options, it is likely the motion gestures features.
The motion gestures features, Lift to Wake and Double Tap, also have been known to cause similar issues as disabling the accidental touch protection.
These two options, when enabled, will unlock the phone’s screen, which can cause issues with the phone pocket dialing and moving around the menu.
To change these features, go to Settings–> Advanced Settings–> Motions and Gestures.
Turn off the first two options, Lift to Wake and Double Tap.
