Some users report the ads appearing in the notification panel of Samsung Galaxy S8 or S8 +. It can be disabled, but the procedure seems to be complicated and not easy to reach, which upset many users of expensive smartphones.
One of the new discussions on Reddite indicates that some users of Samsung Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8 + met with the situation where the notification panel became … an advertising pole. Once it was ejected, ads were offered to encourage the installation of selected games. From the story we can find out that the problem occurs among some people. The Game Optimizing Service seems to be the culprit. Its role is, as the name implies, to optimize the smartphone for games. The problem is that, apparently, its important role is also to push ads in the notification panel.It seems that after updating the system similar situation appeared among users having Galaxy S7. It is not surprising, then, that some people are upset by such default settings. They claim that they are not going to spend $ 1000 on a new device for that, and then have to deal with ads. Of course, ads can be disabled, but this is a somewhat complicated procedure. What's more, it means completely shutting down the service so we get rid of all the notifications it delivers. Other methods fail, and despite their implementation, ads continue to appear.
How to disable ads in Samsung Galaxy S8 notification panel?
First of all, make sure you have Game Launcher enabled (Settings -> Apps -> Game Launcher). Some users reported that the ads were still running despite the exclusion. Then you have to go into its settings and check the Notifications , where you choose the option to not show the notifications on the locked screen. In the next step, enter the Entitlements of the same application and deselect all the applications that requested access. Only then can we completely turn off Game Launcher.
