We we now know not to trust samsung.... on their page it says it only fixes security issues. And has nothing to do with any of the AI malware/Spyware or add programs.

That's a lie, it keeps downloading games ans turning the malware back on

Seriously, if you believe that BS, then you should not buy Samsung phones - period. If you don't trust Samsung, don't buy their products, no one is forcing you.

1. It's not BS.

2. I took security training, and everything I have said is recommended by security firms and the US government.

3. It doesn't matter what phone you own. There are simple recommendations all people should follow.

Deactivate any automatic backup systems.

Deactivate and/or delete any AI, machine learning, and personal assistants. (Including Bixby, Google assistant, Alexa, Siri, etc.)

Go into your Google or Apple accounts and block it from recording any information.

THEN. DON'T. BUY. SAMSUNG. PHONES. Stop complaining about something you CHOSE to buy, knowing these features were included. Your paranoia is so deep, you shouldn't own ANY piece of electronics, but you seem to be most deeply disturbed about Samsung.

I am not complaining about the phone, I am talking about unessesary and harmful extraxsoftware security firms, and the government recommended deactivating and/or deleted.

That being said, it doesn't matter what brand of phone you have. These or similar harmful programs are put on them.

Then become a Luddite. You can disable every single one of those features. I have had Bixby and Assistant disabled since they were invented simply because I don't need them, I don't use them. If the government really considers it harmful/spyware, then they would ban it - they seem to have absolutely no problem banning anything that people want.

Not even close to a Luddite.

I have no problem with technology.

I follow the advice of internet security firms and the US government.

Do you have any links supporting your claim that the US government and security firms recommend deactivating/removing these features? I'm genuinely curious.
