Samsung Galaxy S5 Disable Geo News - Solved

On the Samsung Galaxy S5 the app Geo News is the first time installed. With this app, the user of the Samsung Galaxy S5 is informed about Natural Disaster and extreme weather conditions. Unfortunately, it is so that the app is not yet very mature and a permanently activated GPS is needed.

That is why we now explain to you in our guide on how to disable the Geo News application on the Samsung Galaxy S5.

Open on the Samsung Galaxy S5 the following menu structure:

App Menu --> Settings --> Safety Assistance  --> Geo News

Here you can now turn off the Geo News by using the slider at the top right.  Pulls it from "On" to "Off". Finished! From now on you will not receive any more messages of any natural disasters or weather conditions by Geo News on your Samsung Galaxy S5.

I turned off my geonews ages ago. However, it is still using battery power in background. Whenever I go to clear out all background things using battery, it's in the mix. Can it be completely disabled, so it isn't running in background? Not notifying me isn't good enough.
