Deactivate the Samsung Galaxy S9 pedometer from S Health

The Samsung Galaxy S9 or the Galaxy S9 Plus have both integrated a pedometer, as usual with such high class smartphones. In this way, the S-Health app allows the smartphone to record your steps and determine whether you have reached your daily step target.

The Samsung Galaxy S9 uses motion sensors. The pedometer may not be a relevant function for you and is interfering with the status bar of the device. If you now want to deactivate it, then our article should explain how you can easily switch off the pedometer under Android or in S Health:

Deactivate Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus pedometer

Start from the start screen and open the app "Samsung Health".   In the app, tap the three item icon in the upper right corner to display the menu.   In this menu, tap "Settings „to display the corresponding menu.  

Scroll down a little bit in the Health settings until you see the "Advanced" section.   This section now contains the following option:

  • Show pedometer in the Notification Panel

Deactivate this option and the step counter in the Samsung Galaxy S9 notification bar will disappear. 

You have now successfully removed the step counter from the status bar. This is no longer visible.
