Samsung can easily be the king of bloatware. Most of all the devices by Samsung comes with almost every Google apps and Samsung apps there is. Who cares if you don’t use any if not all of those apps, you’re going to get it anyway. One such app is My Galaxy Widget which constantly annoys users with notification with information that you may not need to know. However, disabling this app is not that easy. You should be able to turn off the notification for My Galaxy ( the app that generates the notification) from Settings > Apps, but this won’t turn it off. You have to delete the app instead. Here’s how to disable My Galaxy notifications.

Step 1: Open the app drawer.
Step 2: Find the app called My Galaxy.
Step 3: Tap and hold it. you’ll see an option to uninstall. If you do not see the option, read further. You’ll need to uninstall the app from the settings.
