@ooijen25 You can't remove a lot of pre-installed apps. The most you can do is disable them, but not even all apps can be disabled, and in that case the only option left is to hide them. Unfortunately, while we buy and own these phones, we don't own the software on them, and don't have 100% control over it.



If my post answered your question, please be sure to accept it as solution so other users can find answers quicker. And give it a Like. Thanks

I agree that Samsung should offer the option to remove or disable more apps. If you're technically inclined, it's possible to use USB debugging and ADB to disable even more apps and services than the phone will allow in settings. I did this to disable Samsung pay, bixby, and several other Samsung services.

I would not attempt this strategy unless you have strong technical skills and can resolve any issues you encounter on your own, but I'm noting that the possibility is there for advanced technical users.

I found a work profile on My phone that I did not install and cannot disable or Uninstall. How does this happen?

This spywear takes up a lot of phone memory. Unfortunately you have to buy an un-googled phone to be rid of it.
