    I keep getting a 'liquid or debris in USB port' message. I have checked multiple times, cleaned port with dry air. I can confirm there is no dust or moisture. Still this error message pops very frequently and won't go unless I restart the phone. Is there any solution?

    Check the cable as well. Try with another cable.

    It is because there IS debris in your USB port. Blow the port once or twice and then charge it....It will work! Again it may show the same problem, Again blow it and charge it, it will work. This will happen for a few weeks... Then the debris will be completely removed and your usb port will be working perfectly fine! You're welcome in advance :)

    You've been hacked through your Wi-Fi. Turn off your Wi-Fi and you won't get the alerts. Just use your carrier service and you'll see the alerts will go away because your Wi-Fi is off

    It happened to me that's how I know about it. This was just the other day, it said I had dirt in my USB port in the middle of the night. I knew it was a hack I disabled my Wi-Fi and the alerts stopped.

    So the router got hacked or the phone itself?

    you tell me why the alerts stop when the Wi-Fi gets turned off, my phone was definitely hacked my bank information my venmo information, I checked it immediately after I got this alert. Then I turned my Wi-Fi off and the alerts stopped

    I think it was likely the router, I mean my phone was definitely hacked but I don't know how many other people got hacked I'm on a public Wi-Fi at an apartment complex. I use a VPN, but there's no other explanation for the alert stopping when I turn off my Wi-Fi. So I checked my apps and my bank and my venmo and my Facebook had all been opened up and passwords were disabled. This has been a big problem man I'm just trying to enlighten you.

    So this occurs on public WiFi networks and on routers without passwords and until now only affects OnePlus devices? Interesting.

    How long did you use your phone over your carrier to come to that conclusion?

    I get the same msg and it is very annoying because sometimes I keep my phone for charging when I have to go out somewhere and when I take my phone, I see it hasn't charged because of this.

    No sense in this.
    I'm using carrier network no wifi, still I get this notification.
    this is due to the problem in cable/port, nothing related to hacking.
