Need suggestions :(

Somehow my phone was marked as stolen remotely. The siren was going off and it was repeating the message that phone was stolen. I woke up and put my in to turn the siren off but I am not sure why or how the phone was marked as stolen. My SIM card was not removed, and it could not have been access through my email as I have 2 step verification. Does anyone have any ideas on how this happened or why? Any suggestions on how to keep it from happening again. I have a Galaxy Note 5, and the avast version is

Thank you,

Not possible to tell what happened.
Could be just a bad contact between the sim card and the phone.

Could the SIM problem also effect the location feature?
