    I have read multiple posts on how to disable the annoying badge notifications for Facebook and the likes ... all discuss Stopping the Badge Provider program and then Disabling it ... all these answers must have been for an earlier Android version ...

    I can Force Stop the app ... but the Disable Button is greyed out ... if I restart the Samsung Note 4, the Badge Provider is now operating again ...

    Why do these app companies thing they can force crap on us when we don't want it ?

    Facebook and other companies think they can do that because they amount of money that they pay to the OEMs and carriers, who put the software on the phones, to include their apps in the bloatware list is rather significant.

    I probably cannot help you with the Facebook apps. While my phone has the Facebook apps as included bloatware, I do not use any of them and have them disabled to the highest extent possible.
