Over the years we have seen the smartphone sector evolve more and more, both in terms of hardware and software with Android which has offered more and more possibilities. These are then further enriched by the customizations made by individual manufacturers to their devices.
Among the manufacturers that we have always found present in the Android smartphone market we find Samsung. The South Korean manufacturer offers the One UI such as software interface and Android customization. Among the various services offered by default on your smartphones we find Upday.
It is a feed of news and content that may prove to be more or less useful. Since it comes pre-installed on most of Samsung’s phones and tablets, we’re going to see in this guide how to disable update. Specifically, we’re going to see how to turn off its notifications e how to uninstall it completely.
What is upday
Before going to see how to disable upday it is good to understand exactly what it is.
Upday is a news and content aggregator that we usually find pre-installed on Samsung devices. Basically it is about a kind of Google Newswith a news feed that is served based on the user profilebased on the interests and browsing history of the specific user.
From this we understand that such a service could not prove to be useful for everyoneor even reveal themselves invasive with periodic notifications, unsolicited battery and resource consumption.
How to disable upday on Samsung phones and tablets
The procedure we are about to see explains how to disable the upday service on telephone e tablet from Samsung. Therefore, the steps that we will see apply to both smartphones and tablets. We talk about deactivation because, since it is a pre-installed and frequently integrated service with Bixby Homeit turns out very difficult to uninstall.
