    Thread Disable smart call reminders?

    Hi guys! I receive daily a notification by Samsung to turn on my Caller ID and Spam protection, which in turn will send Samsung even more data about the calls I receive. I don't want it. Dismissing the notification will just make it show again the next day. How can I remove it for good?
