Digital Wellbeing and Parental Controls App

Is there any way to uninstall this app? 

 

When I go to Settings > Apps > Digital Wellbeing and Parental Controls,  the Disable button is greyed out and when I hit Force stop I get a warning that it may cause errors. I don't care about any errors it may cause to its own data, so I push the OK button and the Force stop choice still stays black.

 

How can I get rid of this very annnoying program on my hone?

 

I have no children so I do not need or want the Parental Controls and I have other apps that I use for my own wellbeing. I find this app both intrusive and annoying.

 

Any suggestions or guidance will be appreciated.

 

Thanks.

You can't remove it. it's baked in bloatware along with the ads that Samsung is pushing in its native apps

Thanks. I was afraid of that. Maybe I'll consider an iPhone next time...

see below. also, iPhone are 1000% more Proprietary than all Androids combined. I've attempted to change over to iThis & iThat over the years and couldn't stand being treated like a moron who obviously requires intense hand-holding to function properly while computing & using other electronics. You think *this* is a problem? It's an annoyance which can be managed. No so Apple- assuming we're idiots, nothing can be modified.

2 many just like that. btw, "force stop"affects nothing unfavorably beyond the app you wish to destroy. read wording closely and it tells us-the only thing misbehaving will be the annoying samsung app. I have Force Stopped evert App with AR in the title. Ive removed pernpmissions to all apps collecting data usage
