Disable ads on Samsung Galaxy S21
You may have seen ads on your Samsung smartphone. The manufacturer does this consciously, even on very expensive models like Galaxy S21. Through ads, the manufacturer earns money or promotes its services or products. If you – really – don’t like commercials, you can happily turn them off.
Almost all ads on Dutch devices come via the Galaxy Store app. Abroad, Samsung is also pushing ads in several other apps, including the weather app and the mobile app. Doesn’t seem to happen here (yet?). The detailed plan below shows how to stop ads across the Galaxy Store.
