Follow below. You'll still gets ads, but Samsung will make less money by less targeted ads. Also don't click ads, Samsung makes money!

Deprive Samsung of this cheap trick to make money. Even cheap $200 Chinese phones don't do what Samsung is doing $2000 phone. 

Imagine driving a Ferrari and the weather app shows ads on excercise routine etc! I hope Samsung lose a lot of customers, they charge iPhone prices but sell their users data (doesn't matter if anonymous!)

Hi Bing, Samsung provides most features of their Services for free. To keep these features free, ads or promotions provided by Samsung or third parties may be displayed while you use the Services.

Or install Blokada and have no ads at all
Disable targeting too though, very important indeed.

You need to block additional domains manually by adding them to your blacklist. See my list

Does your phone internet slow down? I think it's because of VPN.

That's not a VPN, that's Blokada in action. And my speeds are the same
