On my old phone (Galaxy S5) you can disable the notifications that pop up if you locate your phone using the Find My Device feature...this way, if someone steals your phone, they don't necessarily know that you're tracking them. You do this by turning off the notifications for Google Play Services. However, the Galaxy S8 doesn't have Google Play Services listed in the app notifications, so how do you turn this notification off?

From the Home screen, swipe up on an empty spot to open the Apps tray.
Is the 'Find My Device' or 'Google Play Services' in the app list?
If yes, tap the 3 dots icon in the top right of the screen to find option to turn off notifications.
