    Smartphone users just cannot get a break. Verizon will be adding Oath ads and other services to Samsung phones starting with the s9 and s9+. It will also be the content provider to bixby home button and you do not have to be a Verizon customer to get this. I guess this is another reason to disable the bixby button.


    Verizon is putting Oath bloatware like Go90 on its Galaxy S9 phones

    More reason to get carrier unlocked phones direct from manufacturer.

    That's why I have a Motorola. My wife has an S8 and there is a lot of garbage on there. I disabled half the factory apps when she got the phone. To much bloat.

    not sure if that will work in this case since it is the manufacturer that is adding it to bixby for content.
