And YES, there is a way to opt-out of these notifications but, surely they shouldn’t be on a device someone has spent money to buy at the first place. In any way, if you’re facing yourselves pop-up notifications like these, or you just want to opt-out anyway and never  again mess with this type of aggressive promotion, then go into:

Settings → General → Marketing Information, and untick anything related to promotion messages.

Oh and if this doesn’t work, and Samsung keeps spamming your Galaxy smartphone, then try and head over to Settings – Apps – locate Samsung Ads app and deactivate it. You’ll thank us later 😉
