    I've been playing Pokémon Go and over the last day or so whenever I open close or minimize the app I get a notification on my task bar to download Game Tuner. I've tried looking up ways to stop thr notification such as disabling notifications in Galaxy Apps and Play Store but it hasn't worked. I'm not going to download the Gane Tuner and I need the notifications to go away. Can anyone help with this?

    I have similar issue. Mines not exclusive to POGO. It pops up randomly whatever I'm doing. Annoying!

    I take that back. It is now constantly popping up in PoGo!

    I don't believe this is Pokémon go related... Do you have any crapware like CleanMaster installed?

    Might be worth running a malware scan with something like avast...

    I am having the same problem. I started getting the "Introducing Game Tuner" pop up notifications about 24 hours ago. They pop up every few minutes, even if I am not using my phone and there are no active apps. Turned off notifications in Galaxy Apps, but still, this pops up. Installed Avast and ran it - did not fix the problem. Maybe I should install the Game Tuner app and then uninstall it?? Will that make it go away?

    Same thing here! Just started several hours ago. I also installed and ran Avast as well as Malwarebytes, nothing helps.

    Next time the notification pops up, long press it to get info about what it's associated with.

    Tried that. The notification comes right back as soon as you uninstall it.

    Tried the long press (it says "GameMode") and then "i" for info and all notification options are set to no. Still keeps popping up.

    A long press takes me to app notifications for "Game Mode" with a little green Android guy. All notifications are set to "off".

    Those of you getting the notifications did you recently update the Pokemon go app & did any of you download the apk before the game was on Google play store?

    This is what I did. Installed the Game Tuner app, turned it's notifications off, then disabled it. No pop-ups since. Not the best fix but works for now.

    The reason it is popping up with PoGo so much now is Samsung finally actually let the app recognize PoGo as an actual Game now.

    I think i found a solution. At least for my AT&T Galaxy Note 5. When the notification pops up, long press it and it'll take you to notification settings for whatever program makes it pop up. For me it was a Samsung app called Game Mode. Then go back in through settings and application manager and find that app (Game Mode for me) and uninstall any updates for that app. That fixed it for mine hope that works for you

    I did the same thing by uninstalling Game Mode. So far no pop ups have been annoying me.

    How are y'all uninstalling GameMode? I can't. Option is greyed out.

    I did everything this forum says, and it came back! I have a note 4 and I was unable to uninstall updates. I could only disable it or force stop it. Even Samsung themselves doesn't know how to fix this problem, I know because I called them, and they said that this method was the last option. It came up after I installed Polandball: Poland can into space.

    Make sure the app isn't set to auto-update in the play store.

    So this was all an issue with Samsung bloatware?
