Samsung smartphones, particularly those with One UI skins, come pre-installed with the second browser in addition to Google Chrome.

Although some, including myself, consider the Samsung internet browser to be far more useful than the Google Chrome browser, others may disagree.

Most of my friends, including myself, prefer Google Chrome because it has more features, such as device migrations, data synchronization, and so on.

As a result, if you want to get rid of the Samsung Internet browser, it is possible.

As long as the app isn’t installed as a system app (core app) on your Samsung phone, you should be able to uninstall it without difficulty. It is installed in the same way as a regular app, and it can be uninstalled and reinstalled with relative ease from the Google Play Store.

For some reason, the Samsung browser consumes approximately 700MB in storage and cache after continuous use, which is a significant problem if you have a limited amount of available storage space. Learn how to uninstall the Samsung Internet Browser app from any Samsung or Galaxy phone in this tutorial. 

Method 1: Remove the application from the App drawer.

You can uninstall this app by selecting it from the app drawer (or) the All apps menu. This is a simple method that requires little to no technical knowledge.

The following are the steps to follow in order to remove the Samsung Internet browser from the App drawer:

1. Unlock the Samsung Galaxy S6.

2. Swipe up from the bottom of the home screen to open the app drawer and access All Applications.

3. Locate the Internet app and long-press it to bring up a quick options menu with additional options.
Then, at the top of the pop-up menu, select the Uninstall option.

4. Once you confirm your action, the app will be removed from your device.

5. This will immediately uninstall the Internet app from your Samsung Phone as well as free up the storage space it has taken up in your phone’s memory.

This will save nearly 700 MB of storage space on your computer.

Method 2: Using the Preferences Settings

If you are unable to uninstall the app from the app drawer for some reason, you can also uninstall it from the settings menu of your device.

Follow these steps to uninstall Samsung Internet from your system’s configuration:

1. Unlock your Samsung Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge.

2. Open the Settings app and select Apps from the drop-down menu.

3. The All apps menu bar should now be visible if there are only a few applications installed.

4. Scroll down to Samsung Internet and select it from the dropdown menu.

5. From the app’s information page, select Uninstall and then confirm your decision.

The Samsung browser will be permanently removed from your Galaxy smartphone as a result of this action. Any and all storage and files will be erased as well.

Method 3: Remove the app from the App Drawer.

You may not be able to uninstall the Internet application on all Samsung phones.

For example, the Samsung Internet is included as a System app in the premium Galaxy S series, which means it cannot be uninstalled in the normal way.

You can, on the other hand, disable the Internet app in order to remain hidden from the Samsung phone.

This function is very similar to that of the uninstalled app, despite the fact that the files are still available on the phone.

Follow these steps to turn off and hide the Samsung Internet browser:

1. Unlock the Samsung Galaxy S6.

2. Swiping up from the Home screen will bring up the App Drawer.

3. Locate the Internet app and long-press it to bring up a quick options menu with additional options.

4. To turn off the pop-up menu, click on the Disable icon at the top of the window.

Although the Internet app will be hidden from view on the Phone, the storage space will remain occupied.

Before disabling the Samsung Internet, you might want to consider clearing the browser’s cache and site data.

Our Final Thoughts

It is simple to remove the Samsung Internet browser from your Samsung smartphone.

The Samsung Browser is not a system app because it uses the One UI.

As a result, uninstalling the app is as simple as uninstalling any other app.

However, some premium phones, such as the Galaxy S series, do not allow uninstallation; in this case, you can disable the app.

There are a variety of other web browsers that you can install on your Samsung Mobile.

Because Samsung is based on Android OS, there are a plethora of web browsers that are superior to the Internet App.

Personally, I prefer the Google Chrome app due to its ease of use, connectivity, and synchronization across Google Account-enabled devices.

As a result, it is the most popular browser on Android phones.
