Samsung’s Good Lock app lets you tweak the Galaxy devices’ UI without the need for root access or time-consuming modifications. With this app, cleaning up your device’s status bar is just a few taps away. If you do not prefer the cluttered status bar, this tutorial is for you. Here’s how to modify status bar icons in Galaxy S9.
Modify Status Bar Icons in Galaxy S9
You will need an addon for Good Lock called Quick Star. This addon allows you to tweak tons of settings in Galaxy’s TouchWiz UI. Among those tweaks is the ability to remove any icon on the status bar.
So obviously you will need to install Good Lock first. You can install the app for free form Galaxy Apps. Open Galaxy Apps from the app drawer and search for Good Lock. Install it and you are good to go. However, your Galaxy device needs to be running Android Oreo or above for this to work.
Open the app and tap on Quick Star on the main screen. This will take you to another screen where you can download the selected addon. Tap on the Install button and wait for it to install. It will be enabled automatically after installation.
Get back to the main screen and tap on Quick Star again. This time, you will get into the addon’s tweak screen. Tap on Simple Indicator and enable it by switching the toggle. Now, you can simply use the toggles next to each entry to either enable or disable them. Find the entries you do not want to see and disable it to remove their corresponding icons form the status bar.
Quick Star does more than just clearing up the status bar. You can heavily modify the notifications and Quick Settings panel. Play around with it.
