How To Disable Bixby on Your Samsung Galaxy Phone?

(How To Disable Bixby) People have a lot of opinions about Bixby. If you’re using a recent Galaxy phone and find yourself butting heads with Samsung’s bespoke virtual assistant, I’ve got good news: it’s pretty simple to disable it altogether. Here’s how.

Samsung’s Bixby, the virtual assistant designed to make our lives easier, might not be everyone’s cup of tea. If you find yourself wanting to disable Bixby on your Samsung Galaxy phone, you’re in the right place. In this guide, we’ll walk you through the detailed steps on how to bid farewell to Bixby and reclaim control over your device.

These tips apply to all Samsung Galaxy devices from the Note 10 and newer, as they don’t have dedicated Bixby buttons. The Samsung Galaxy S8, S9, S10, Note 8, and Note 9 have dedicated Bixby buttons that can’t be fully deactivated.

How to Disable From your Phone’s Side Key?

By default, newer Samsung phones open Bixby when you hold down the side key — the key you’d expect to function as a power button. Here’s how to change that.

(1). Open the power menu

  • Swipe down on your home screen once to show your notifications, then swipe down again to expand quick settings. You’ll see a power icon in the top right corner.

(2). Tap Side key settings

(3). Under Press and hold, select Power off menu

Disable “Hi Bixby” Detection?

In the same way, the Google Assistant listens for “Hey Google,” Bixby can listen for “Hi Bixby.” It’s a pretty unique-sounding phrase, so you’re not likely to trigger it accidentally — but if you want to turn it off, follow these steps.

(1). Open the Bixby app

(2). Open the side menu

(3). Tap the settings icon

(4). Toggle the Voice wake-up setting off

Also, note that Bixby doesn’t work at all when you’re not signed into a Samsung account, so if you’re not using any other Samsung-specific features, you could just sign out under Manage accounts in your phone’s settings.
