Re: Samsung Internet App - Why Can't I Disable It?

JUMP TO SOLUTION
I will be gping to another phone other then Samsung. The Samsung internet App is being forced down my throat and I will not be getting any more Samsung products of any kind ever again. the Note 8 is wonderful, untill Samsung made it so I have to use there browser, and not my own, like Firefox. Untill now you could not give an iphone. now I'm going to get one for my wife, kids, and my self. the Note 8 is on its way out for all of us. my whole FAMILY feels the same way on this one. now bye bye Samsung.

Hey folks.

Stock apps, whether they are made stock by Google, Samsung, or your carrier, can not be uninstalled. They can be disabled usually by going to Settings>Apps, clicking on the app in question (like the internet) and then the disable button. Some stock apps won't have that option, but that's the only way to disable an app.

You can't disable it, but you can change your browser to Google by doing this:

Apps>samsung internet>browser app>choose google

 

Now all incoming hyperlinks will be browsed through google.

It cannot be disabled and will eventually auto update even if auto update is turned off.

 

Frustrating

I'm not sure how this was solved - you have to scroll to tab 6 where the REAL solution resides.  Why does the mod give the wrong answer???

 

First go to sittings stop samsung internet ,then go to play store find samsung internet app uninstall (three bars top left).  After, unclick auto update. Internet and notification's are now gone (but the icon remains).  Keep in mind, now you have to manually update apps - I'd check once a week - just don't select the Samsung internet update...  Thanks to the original post (which i edited).
