I think the title says it all.  I don't want it disabled, I want it off my device

Good morning @JohnFol

I hope you're doing well.

Unfortunately digital well being cannot be Uninstalled because it's baked into the OS.

Many thanks for the quick reply, however I think it's an app from Samsung rather than something Google (the people who wrote Android) insist upon.

So the follow up question is how do I uninstall Android 13?

Correct Samsung's one UI skin is apart of the Android Operating system. Google does develop Android however OEMs such as Samsung program their own UIs within Android, which buit-in apps such as Digital well being are apart of.

Ok, so it's not part of the OS. How do I remove it?

You cannot. The only thing you can do is force stop it.

Root the phone
Do what someone said and debug
Both of which are dangerous and could ruin the phone
I ignore the wellbeing

This is not correct. Digital Wellbeing is built into Android by Google, it is entirely a Google product and cannot be removed from the phone in any capacity.

Either way it still does tie to my original answer if you go and read it. Which is stated it's in the OS itself

You cannot remove it. It is baked into the OS by Samsung. To get rid of the Samsung apps, you would need to install a generic unbranded Android OS or have root access to remove system apps. If you have a US model phone, there is no way to do either.
