Remove ads from your Samsung One UI 4.1 lock screen
Samsung One UI 4.1 comes with an improved Dynamic Lock Screen that has its own impact on customizations. But Ads and pop-up banners appearing on your Galaxy phone’s lock screen can ruin your entire One UI experience.
I think you too must be troubled by these ads that’s why you have come here. Samsung does not place ads on your home or lock screen. Ads are common in pre-downloaded apps. Sometimes, you see ads on your lock screen when you are not even using your mobile.

Also, Samsung smartphones come with lock screen services, which are basically advertisements on the lock screen. One such is Glance which comes pre-installed and enabled by default on some low-cost smartphones.

Apart from showing advertisements, Samsung Glance also promotes applications and games. Even if this feature isn’t annoying for some, it takes over the set wallpaper to show its own content.
Fortunately, the company itself provides some ways to disable these ads from your phone’s lock screen. In this article, we will show you how to remove ads from your Samsung One UI 4.1 Lock Screen.
Remove ads from Samsung One UI 4.1 Lock Screen
- Tap and hold the Home Screen for a couple of seconds.
- Enter the Wallpaper section.
- Click on Wallpaper services.
- Finally, tap None to disable the Glance service.
Newly downloaded apps can cause ads:
If you recently started seeing ads on your Samsung lock screen, it’s likely that a newly downloaded app is to blame for the suspicious activity. You can easily view recently activated apps and uninstall them using Play Store. To do this:
- Go to Google Play Store.
- Tap on your Profile logo.
- Enter Manage apps and devices.
- Tap Manage.
Tap on Installed >> Sort by Last Used.
Among the most recently used apps, select an issued app and tap Uninstall to get rid of the application.
Note: Flashlight, battery optimization, or weather apps tend to cause advertisements on the lock screen. Try to delete these types of apps first and see if the problem persists on your mobile device.
Report inappropriate ads to Google:
Google Play policy states that the app must not contain deceptive ads or ads that cause inconvenience. Ads may only appear within the app being offered. In general, ads shown within the app are considered part of the app. Therefore, the ads displayed in the app must comply with all Google policies.
In case you have identified the app with inappropriate ads, you can report it to the Play Store. To do this:
- Go to the install page for the app in Google Play Store.
- Tap on More options (three vertical dots).
- Tap Flag as inappropriate.

Samsung Galaxy Watch5 Tip: How to get a good night’s sleep
We spend about a third of our lives sleeping – during this time body and mind can come to rest. With the realization that a good night’s sleep is an important basis for our health, Samsung Galaxy Watch5 and Watch5 Pro support users in improving their sleep quality.
Measuring and analyzing sleep and starting everyday life more relaxed is a new trend. Around half of Galaxy Watch users track their sleep at least once a week, and 40% even more than three times a week. A better understanding of your sleep habits can make it easier to improve them and in turn, contribute to quality sleep.
Here’s how to get a good night’s sleep:
- Understand sleep patterns and adjust habits
Every person has their own sleeping rhythm and their own sleeping habits. The Samsung BioActive Sensor in the Galaxy Watch5 series can help to understand and, where possible, improve personal sleep needs.
Samsung’s technology can measure users’ sleep patterns whether they snore when the deep sleep phase begins, or how high the oxygen content is in the blood. With the Samsung Health app, these values can be easily viewed the following morning.
- Gathering this data can be the first step in establishing an efficient nighttime routine.
Samsung’s sleep analysis can help with this process by recording sleep behavior over seven days and then assigning it to one of eight animal symbols such as Alligator and Lion. Users also get helpful tips and instructions on exercise, nutrition, and mindfulness.
- For the ideal bedroom
The importance of a good sleeping environment should not be underestimated either. Details such as screen lighting or room temperature can have a major impact on sleep.
That’s why the sleep mode, which can be synced with the Galaxy Watch and Galaxy smartphones, silences distracting notifications before you fall asleep and turns the screen display into shades of gray.
In addition, the “Always On Display” function is deactivated. Sleep mode also prevents the Galaxy Watch from being accidentally activated when users touch the display or move their wrists.
Thanks to SmartThings, even more functions and features can be used for restful sleep. For example, compatible blinds, light switches, and air conditioning systems can be automatically controlled to fall asleep via the Galaxy Watch.
Samsung is constantly working to promote ideas and solutions for restful sleep and healthy sleeping habits. Through ongoing partnerships with industry leaders, including the National Sleep Foundation, Samsung provides practical insights to support healthy living habits.
