Earlier today, my phone was in the standby mode. All of a sudden it started playing something at a loud volume. I turned the app off that was playing some movie or TV show or something. Not sure why it started playing. I noticed that my mobile data warning came up, and that an app called Samsung Free had just gobbled up 1.8 GB of data in a relatively short period of time. I went into Settings - Apps and found Samsung Free and tried to uninstall it or disable it and was not able to do that. I have never used this app, nor intend to. I'm wondering if anyone knows how to uninstall or at a minimum disable this dangerous app.
Solved! Go to Solution.
You can disable it by
- Long pressing on a blank spot on the home screen until the row of icons appear at the bottom of the screen.
- Swipe right until you see the Samsung Free screen
- Slide the switch at the top to the left to turn it off.
