    Exactly. What a joke to have to create an account and log in so you can disable it?!? Bixby can su** a fat one!

    Can I sue for being coerced to update Bixby? Holy sh¡t, it is annoying, invasive, it disrupts my video chats, game apps, and videos incessantly! It’s so annoying and pervasive that at one point I wanted to take a hammer to it. I feel like I’m being forced to update to the new Bixby, which I never use anyway and don’t feel like sharing my contacts. It’s like “Update or else we’ll annoy the sh¡t out of you and disrupt your life through the phone’s functions.” F***ing aggressively unethical!! Is there a law against that kind of practice? I’ll sue.
