How To Disable Samsung Wallet

If you are trying to stay true to the Samsung ecosystem, you might want to stick to using Samsung Wallet; this is the company’s own app that is now integrated with Samsung Pass, and for the most part, it works really, really well. However, it also reminds us that Google Wallet is already there, which has been around for some time now, and it is actually better than what Samsung has to offer. If you are trying to figure out how to disable Samsung Wallet, this guide is for you as we will tell you how you can take care of this easy process.

Disable Samsung Wallet and go back to using Google Wallet with ease

Now, ideally, there really should not be a need to disable Samsung Wallet in the first place. However, from the moment you set up your phone for the first time, you are made aware of the fact that the app is so well baked into the One UI that you get access to it anywhere you want. It resides in your gesture navigation bar at all times, and it can be annoying if you use gesture navigation because swiping up sometimes brings the wallet up instead of doing the task you were originally going to do.

In addition to that, having two wallet apps can sometimes cause a conflict and cause one app to delete the payment information saved in the other app. Something that I experienced when Samsung Wallet deleted all the payment information from Google Wallet, and I just stood there confused. If you want to disable Samsung Wallet, then just follow the steps below:

Step 1: Open the Samsung Wallet app on your phone.

Step 2: Once you are in the app, tap All.

Step 3: Now choose the three-dot menu from the top right corner and choose Settings.

Step 4: Now choose Quick Access and then tap on the Swipe up gesture.


Step 5: Make sure you disable all toggles.

Once you are done with that, you are pretty much done with the process of disabling Samsung Wallet. However, if you want to take a step further and completely get rid of it, ensuring that it does not mess with your Google Wallet or other app, then you can completely uninstall it. Thankfully, Samsung now allows you to do so, and you will not be left with an older Wallet app. You can just go ahead and download it again should you feel the need to use the app all over again.
