Hi,

I never use Samsung Health and Samsung Health Monitor. I disabled their features as much as the setting allowed me. However, they are still tracking, and this is exactly what I don't want. I noticed that they both have the option to allow background activity. But... Surprise, surprise!... It seems like it's on by default. I cannot uncheck that. The button looks slightly greyed out. How do I stop this background activity? 

Or, even better, how can I completely remove these apps?

Thank you.

I don't have the disable option. Only force stop.
