    No one. Was just asking to get an idea as many are seeing them in different areas. Most are complaining of them showing up in apps. First I've heard of the notifications bar, but I imagine that can be annoying.
    Who said it was in the internet browser? It appeared to me in my notifications bar. If it was on internet browser I wouldn't mind, since I use AdBlock App to solve it there.

    Nope, not ok.

    Note 9 is my last Samsung phone, not even gonna chance it.

    Maybe I'm getting old but I seem to care more about longevity than I used to and not having a bunch of crap on my phone I dont want.

    90% sure my next phone will be a Pixel.

    Yeah, my friend, it was annoying. I took three days researching, asking and so on to disable it. I was ready to sell this phone when I finally could rid this 'feature' off. Is something integrated with 'Samsung AdServices' or some **** called this...

    Completely unacceptable. You pay $1400 for a phone, you shouldn't be forced with ads when you get it home. At the very least you should be able to turn them off.

    I saw that article where they stick an ad in the dialer?! Really Samsung?? I think I read a month or two ago ads popping up in their Samsung Music app or something like that??

    When I got my Note 8... Irritated me that I'd open the Samsung Store app to check on Samsung updates and I would get an ad the moment I opened it... and it had music playing at full blast causing attention before I had a chance to close it. And there was no option to disable.

    I had to buy a lifetime subscription to Adguard Pro to remove the irritating pop up because on Android it blocks ads in apps as well as browsers.

    S20 ultra user here and the ads are pissing me off.

    I'm hoping Adguard works on these ads when I plan to go Note 20+

    If you're curious to see if it works, they have a free trial period to test on their site. I believe you have to download the version from their site and side-load because the Google Play version is browser only where the full version blocks ads in apps.

    https://adguard.com/en/adguard-android/overview.html

    It seriously is the best $25 I spent for the last 3 years of ad free headaches. I do have to say once in a rare while the Samsung Store would show an ad... I guess Samsung is always working as hard to get around ad blockers but for most part been affective.

    If Adguard doesn't block them and they continue with this forcing ads on people, I don't know what I'll do.

    One thing I have already done recently is go from 95% using Samsung Pay / 5% Google Pay first two years to almost 100% Google Pay (MST Chip was awesome in beginning but not really needed now). That and disabled Bixby from the beginning when they tried to force that on ya... don't give them any other business if they wanna play that way.

    I was getting the notification ads until I turned them off but no matter how many times I unsubscribe, no matter what my settings are in their different apps, I still get emails from them. finally just started sending them directly to my spam folder via rule. Thought about finding one of their email addresses and forward the emails to them.

    Yes, but I had to find it on the internet, and it was no simple... But I could manage it, and that's why I'm still using this phone.
    I was referring to the notifications themselves. Not sure its applicable to your situation but I just disable for a specific app.Is Samsung going to really do this... Ads?-screenshot_20200701-132535.jpeg

    Same as youtube you watching or listening to something and next thing is a add that you can't skip it is ridiculous or your watching/listerning to something and you get an add that you can skip or close which is followed by one you can't

    Or the add blocks the website with no obvious way to get rid of it..

    Some folks just don't care about their phones. My friend currently uses an iPhone 4. He can't be helped, I've tried. Then there's people like many of us here, in the forums. Some people will take this personally.

    Also, being on a budget. Not buying a flagship. These are not excuses to ruin people's experience with their device, that they paid for.

    I just seen this, my brother got a ad on his ultra 20 today. I'm not at all happy about this, I paid good money for this phone. I was looking to go to the note 20, but I'm not sure now. These aren't cheap phones to have to put up with ads.

    Same its ridiculous that stock apps have ads. Tacky.

    It's been all over reddit. I wonder what's the reason some are seeing intrusive ads. Doesn't really seem like Samsung. Wonder if it's some kind of bug.
    Perhaps it is a bug. I too am surprised that Samsung would allow this. I have yet to experience anything on my S10. This is disconcerting.

    You think that is bad. Try paying $3500 for a Samsung QLED TV and getting Ads on the NOT JUST the smart TV mode, but on the Input/Source Menu as well. It's unbelievable and I will NOT buy and other SAMSUNG TV.

    I was thinking that as well. Kind of like when people download some janky free apps and have ads take over the use of their phone.

    Reading the articles I posted are saying Samsung is doing it, not third party apps. I don't view it as a bug.

    This happens all the time.. Just because some haven't seen ads doesn't mean Samsung isn't doing it. I've posted article that says Samsung is doing it and it also says select markets. So I would assume not everyone is getting them. Be glad if your one not getting them.

    I have it turned off. Isn't that for Google ads anyway. If I turn it off it just says we'll still get ads, just not personalized to us.

    I am surprised considering how many Samsung’s apps guess you owned over the years. You have been fortunate. My first Samsung and I’m one for one on ads lol.

    An old thread from the Note 8 Forum a couple of years ago. Other people also had it.
