Block Samsung Free app on AE-DO device

expand collapsive


Our company has a fleet of Android devices that are enrolled under the Android Enterprise – Device Owner program. I take care of app management in these devices, and I was able to blacklist certain apps that aren’t required on them via policies.

But I couldn’t blacklist the app, “Samsung Free” as I couldn’t find it in the list of apps under the blacklist/whitelist policy or in the portal’s applications tab. It would be of great help if anyone could provide me with a solution to hide this app.

    Hello @aaron, thanks for reaching out to us.

    The Samsung Free app is Samsung’s recent replacement for Bixby Home, a content aggregator service that comes installed as a default app in the device.

    You can search and add the following app: “Bixby Home” ( to the Blacklisting policy to hide the app.

    Hope this helps.
