The Samsung Galaxy S21 has an option for accidental touch protection that helps stop pocket dialing.
It is meant to help protect the phone from automatically dialing a phone number, opening apps, or turning on other functions.
This can be useful when placed in a pocket, purse, or anytime it is being carried about.
A notification will display on the phone “Accidental Touch Protection: Your phone is being protected from accidental touches. Keep the top of your phone clear to prevent this from happening”.
It can be a good option but sometimes can be too sensitive on some smartphones and can constantly go off.
If it becomes too sensitive and is always going off with an accidental touch protection notification, the option can be disabled and removed.
Likewise, it can also be turned back on and enabled.
