If you like using the Samsung Pay option for purchases but don’t want it located on your home screen you can easily disable the feature with a few simple steps. You can pick which screens your Samsung pay will be shown on, making it easy to access.
If you don’t have a passcode or fingerprint access set up on your Samsung Smartphone anyone can access your cards through Samsung Pay. We recommend always setting up the smart lock feature using a passcode or fingerprint so your personal and private information stays that way. This should be one of your first steps after purchasing a new smartphone.
There is also a video at the bottom of this post for a video walk-through to further assist you if needed.
How To Get Rid of Samsung Pay On The Home Screen
- Swipe up on the home screen
- Select Samsung Pay App
- Select the Hamburger Icon
- Select Settings
- Select Use Favorite Cards
- Turn Off or On
Using your thumb or finger, swipe up from bottom to top to access your apps.
If you have a lot of apps it may be easier to use your search bar on the top of the screen to find the Samsung Pay app. Just type the name of the app you are wanting to open.
This hamburger icon is also the three horizontal lines located on the top left side of the screen.
This is where you will be able to access your Samsung Pay depending on which options you choose.
If you find it annoying or are concerned with your credit card showing on the lock screen, home screen, or screen off, you can easily turn these features off or on by following the simple steps above. This will still allow you to use the Samsung Pay feature for everyday purchases but allows you to choose where you want to access it from on your smartphone. You don’t need to have Samsung Pay available on all three screens, pick the preference that fits your needs.
