Re: ads?

If you press and hold down that notification for 3-5 seconds what pops up? It should show the source of the notification.

Re: ads?

I believe this is "game offer notifications".

You can find this setting in the galaxy store by pressing the 3 lines in the top left, then select the settings gear wheel. Turn off marketing choice, game offer notifications and turn off customization service or set to unused.

Hope this helpsScreenshot_20200802-215607_Galaxy Store.jpg

Samsung Weather App shoving ads to users

I noticed the native Samsung app now shows you ads from the internet unrelated to Samsung. The ads are terrible and from shady providers and obviously not reviewed. I received this ad "Best Medical Supplements (Must See)"

Very disappointing. I paid $1,400 not end up with terrible shady ads on native apps. Very bad image for Samsung.

Can you provide a screenshot of your weather app doing this after turning off customization service. 

 

Any yes the small ads on music i dont see any way of removing those.

 

Update: so when i turn this off i dont see the ads on top of the weather app but there are two when i scroll to the bottom. We should be able to block all ads if we want.

Also just found that google has a similar service.

Go to settings>google>ads>opt out of ads personalization

Turn it on to opt out and reset your advertising ID

 

Hope this helps
