Phone vibrating for no reason

Hi all,

My Fairphone 2 started vibrating for no reason a couple of days ago. At first this only happened when the screen was on (which was still pretty annoying!), but now it has also happened when the screen is off. Basically it feels like a notification from some app, but when I check it, there’s no notification on the screen, and no light flashing as usually happens. So it really is for no reason. This happened about six times in ten minutes on one occasion.

It’s not constant, and I thought a reboot had stopped it happening, but then it started up again!

Anyone else faced this problem?


Hi Hannah, do you still get these vibrations? Mine does this occasionally, but I think it is linked to a virus or something, that sometimes hijacks links, redirecting them to spam websites, some of which cause this vibration.
