    I have a Samsung S5. The OS is up to date. I use the Samsung Internet Beta browser. I have removed every Google app I can find, and set the rest to no notifications. Still, every time I unlock my screen with a fingerprint, the phone slows to a crawl while it pops up the browser to the Google account login page. I can't even make a call until it's done. How can I make it stop doing that? My wife has the same phone, and hers doesn't do it. I don;t even have a Google account, and I never will.

    Sorry to horn in here, but with Android devices, you kind of have to have a Gmail account, because when you first get the device, you have to sign into the device with a Gmail account.

    I think it's possible to skip that, but in general, using an Android device without a Google account can be limiting to a certain extent.

    I'm the OP. Here is a link to the page that pops up: https://accounts.google.com/signin/v...y=ServiceLogin
    but I don't seem to be able to copy a snipped screenshot in here.

    It makes me wonder if some app you installed carries some adware that tries to open your Play Store. Does this happen in Safe Mode as well? https://support.t-mobile.com/docs/DOC-28456

    I tried to post a screenshot and link, but my post disappeared. It's the login for Googleplay, as far as I can tell. It wants my Google login, which I do not have, and even if I did I don't want them popping my browser up and demanding it when all I want to do is make a phone call or check the weather. I will post the link separately in case the mods are killing it, so that this post won't be thrown out with it.
