Samsung is finally ditching one of its smartphones’ most-hated features

However, the change won’t be instant. The ads will be gone “later this year”, according to the Samsung statement. This means the upcoming Galaxy S22 could be the first of its phones to ship without ads.

Can’t wait until then? Luckily there is a way to reduce the number of ads you see – although most users don’t know about it, and it won’t remove them entirely.

Head over to your Settings app, then select “Samsung Account”. Under Privacy, you’ll find a “Customisation Service” option which will show you your Privacy Settings. The option to choose here is again called “customisation service”. Toggling this off should remove ads which are based on your personal information, as well as cut down on the overall number.
