STOP notifications to turn on offline finding

JUMP TO SOLUTION

In the past week I started getting the HORRIBLE annoying notification to "Turn On Offline Finding?"  

 

There are no options to turn it off in settings and it's driving me crazy.  How do I turn this off on my S10?

 

If I can't, I'm going to dump this Samsung product and buy something, anything, that does not go all orwellian and track happy on me.

Someone else figured it out...Go to Settings then Apps. Scroll down until you find the Find my Phone  app. Tap the app and NOT the settings for the app. Ignore everything but tap the three dots on the top right of the screen. It should say "Uninstall updates". Tap that and agree to uninstall the updates. So far it is working.

I'm having the same problem on my S20! It was sending that push notification every once in a while but the last few days it seems like it happens every few minutes.

 

And if I go to app settings, it's impossible to turn off notifications for this app.

You can't turn it off (boo, hiss), but if you long press on the notification, you can at least make it silent.

Let's hope Samsung sorts this out. I do not want this app running, so stop telling me to turn it on

Yeah. Samsung needs to.... well fix is the incorrect term.  They need to STOP forcing their apps on products I have purchased. Fine have it come on the phone, but I should not be forced to use it!! I currently only buy Samsung products: TV's, Monitors, phones etc. I will stop that practise pretty fast if I can't get this resolved withina couple of weeks.

 

Pull you heads outta the sand Samsung. Bloatware pushers. Give people to option to use your software because I DON'T HAVE TO BUY SAMSUNG.

I'll never again purchase anything from Samsung. If a company tries to force me to comply to use my phone, my personal device that I purchased out-right and unlocked, as an access point I'll buy from one of their competitors. You'd need to pay me to use my home network as an access point.  They're trying to create a network without paying for it. Such greed can't stand.

I agree...done with Samsung! Back to Moto for me! Bought the Xcover Pro and almost instantly regretted it.
