    New S21 here. Just getting used to it. One thing that annoys the living Hell out of me is all the stupid messages I am getting on my Lock Screen. I don't want ANY marketing messages. It's pure torture to me. I will root the phone or throw it out if I have to.

    Please someone help: How do I stop endless marketing messages every time I look at Lock Screen?

    You use Spotify or have it on the device?

    That's going to be up to each individual app. For example, in Spotify, tap the gear icon, scroll down and tap Notifications, then turn off notifications for things like Spotify News and Offers, Product News, etc.

    No, I don't use Spotify. But even if I did, I would not want those notices. They drive me crazy, haha. It's just a pet peeve of mine. Nowadays it seems like everything is being over-marketed, and the barrage of marketing is almost all useless (to me, anyway).

    On my old phone you cannot uninstall most apps. Is it different on the S21? Can I actually get in there and get rid of the bloatware??

    Thanks very much!

    Yeah , B. Diddy turn off notifications works if you do have them installed, yes there are some you can uninstall otherwise look into these 2 to get rid of bloat that normal would have to root .

    Did you already check in Settings>Apps to see if you can uninstall Spotify, or at least Disable it? If you can do either of those, you wouldn't have to use Package Disabler.

    The Google Assistant one is an email, just unsubscribe from it. Google gives you the links at the bottom on the email.
