    I've had my S5 for a few weeks now and have had this issue all along. The Weather Widget on the first home page keeps disappearing. I searched back and found other with this problem but the answers focused on how to get it back and not why it disappears in the first place. I know how to get it back. I want to stop it from disappearing in the first place.

    Seems that today, if I add it back, lock the screen, and open back up again, it is gone.

    same problem on Galaxy S9+. The widget becomes invisible, its there but invisible. if you press on it, it will offer to remove from home screen but still invisible. I remove it and then re add it and its fine. for another 3-4 days and then it does it again. I have changed no settings or tweaks the POS just keeps disappearing.

    Weather widgets (especially for phones made for the Chinese market and resold overseas) sometime contain embedded malwares. Existing anti-virus/malware app might be blocking it. Scan the phone with a trusted anti-virus/malware app before doing anything else.
