    My new S8 does not show the little red notification number on the home screen against the apps messages, phone, facebook or whatsapp. If it put the icon on the edge screen then the red notifications come up but not when i drag the icon to the home screen. This is frustrating. I don't want to see it on the locked screen either.

    Easy fix!!! Tried the whole 'badgeprovider' and 'samsung home experience' settings. They didn't work!!! I have a S9+. Pinched home screen to show 'themes, widgets, etc.' Went to the
    >'home screen settings'
    >'app icon badges'(enable)


    BOOM!!! Works now!

    Hope this helps.
