Upday on the Samsung Galaxy S7 – Disable notifications

If you want to use the Upday service on your Samsung Galaxy S7, but you do not always want to receive notification of new events in the status bar, then you can disable it by doing the following:

Open the "Upday" application on your Samsung Galaxy S7. To do this, go back to the Home screen and then wipe to the left to access the Upday Home screen.

Click on the "More" button in the upper right corner. Select "Settings" from the menu that opens. You will see the Upday settings and the first option "Notifications".

Now deactivate the slider to no longer be notified of up-dates in the case of urgent news via the status bar. From now on, if a new message appears with Upday, you will no longer be informed about this in the notification bar of your Samsung Galaxy S7.

You will need to be informed about new messages via the Upday widget on the home screen.

Thank you Terry!

I hate that Samsung inflict this crap on is.

One of their wretched updates started this hateful app, and it is clearly designed to deter us from deactivating it.

Now very unlikely to repeat purchase a Samsung.

Just like to say a huge thanks to Terry in post #3551. This method has finally worked after a month of being infuriated by this app. You are a star!

The instructions above don't relate to my Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge (Android 7.0 Nougat). From my phone's home page, I have to swipe to the RIGHT to open the Upday home page. Then tap the "More" button (the 3 vertical dots) in the top right corner. There is no option for "Settings". Instead, tap "My Profile" and scroll to the bottom of the page where you will find "Notifications". Tap this and use the (two) sliders to disable or enable "Breaking News" and/or "Personalised notifications".

I detest Upday aka 'Ad Spammer' and all the other marketing/ads/tracking crap that Samsung bundle with their phones. Wish I could permanently delete the offending apps without having to root the phone.
