How did this app get on my phone and is it spyware? 
This service is standard software, included by the manufacturer of your phone. It is not illegally downloaded, and it is not spyware. It will not cause system malfunctions or pop-up ads to appear. It is not bloatware and typically uses a max of 20 MB of space. For example, on a 16GB phone, this service takes up 0.0013% of space. We do not pay phone manufacturers to have this service pre-installed. 

How can I remove this service? 
Since this service is standard software, you’re unable to delete it from your phone. Instead, you can disable this service by following the manufacturer’s instructions. The typical process is: settings>applications>application manager>appropriate app>force stop>disable

Disabling this service will not affect your phone’s software. If, in the future, you require the ability to connect to services and devices via ANT+, just enable the service again. 

NOTE: Since this is a factory installed service, it may enable/re-download if you reset and/or update your phone. Don’t panic! Just follow the instructions to disable it again. 

Does this service track me without my knowledge?
No. The ANT Radio Service and ANT+ Plugins Service applications provide a wireless connectivity service, similar to Bluetooth or WiFi, but with very low power. These services do not collect any personal data.

Is it difficult to develop an app with ANT+ capabilities and is there a fee? 
Using the ANT+ plugins in your app to communicate with ANT+ devices is quick, easy, free and uses a simple API. Visit the ANT Android Developer page ( for more information and to download the SDK. 

How do I know if I own any ANT enabled products?

    Not given logical reason for this unnecessary need on my device. If communication between devices via bluetooth is not needing said app then what is this purpose. I can use all devices when disabled or vague "uninstalled" options... sorry not sorry. If I can be proven or believed otherwise then I'll stand corrected. Till then GET OFF MY DEVICES IF ITS NOT NECESSARY FOR ITS FUNCTIONAL USE. Thanks, but no thanks!

    samsung The app probably deserves 5 stars but it has an annoying shortcoming as there is no way (at least as I can find) to select and delete multiple open/closed notifications. Since I use my garage door as my primary access to the front of the house, I spend quite a bit of time every few days selecting and deleting each notification manually.

    app You can't even DOWNLOAD on this service. We've had our service with T-mobile's for a week and have had problems every day, taken phones back to store several times. They fix service and then it keep you from downloading again.

    keeps stopping So it's an app that's not optimized for my device pre installed for some other app, presumably also not optimized for my device which I cannot uninstall. It's as useless as the people who installed it I want to take my one star back but it won't even let me do that

    reddit Don't need it and don't want it yet I cannot uninstall nor disable it. The disable process in the app description does not work on Android 10 and to top it all off it's not even optimized for my device. I'm done with Samsung product as I should have the ability to control what is on my device I paid a boat load of money for. Never again. We've long needed congress to catch up with technology and pass laws protecting the consumer and their data from such companies.

    uninstall I have no idea what this really is none I've had it on my phone from the beginning I bought a Samsung j5 it's now updated by least 3 years probably for now but it runs like clockwork but this was on it and I never really abused it I don't even know what it is frankly maybe when I buy my new Samsung phone I hope in the next 6-months I know what it is by then the little emblem of their image reminds me of like a a space now so it looks pretty cool it's only reason I leave it on my phone

    adalah Gotta say that I too have no idea how this app ended up on my phone, I don't recall making a decision to download it. But there it was. I recently bought a new phone and as I'm looking through apps to make sure everything transferred, I see ant radio. I click on it, because I didn't know what it was. Still don't.

    que es Bloatware! This "app" gives itself permission and access to your phone. I have gone back and forth turning off the app, clearing the data, and turning off all the permissions it gave itself only to go back and see they all magically turned themselves back on! This is where your info gets leaked to overseas scammers.

    For those who don't know what this is. Ant is short for antenna. This is the software that the device uses to manage its ability to transmit and received data via 3g 4g 5g etc with out it your phone will not function as fast as it is capable of. Would be nice if the description explained this better to avoid user confusion.

  13. BLG-avatar



    I am so done with Samsung & their preinstalled apps. It's just not right for them to dictate what apps are to be in our phones. It's a real pi#@ off not being allowed to uninstall them nor disable all unwanted apps We pay all this money for a cellphone. It sure makes you wonder if it might be time to go back to a home phone. I do appreciate the quality of the camera but I'm rethinking my decision.

    This app is basicly like bluetooth it comes with your phone it doesnt do anything if you dont use app that use it it doesnt need to be uninstalled and only uses 2mb there is no reason to complain about it isnt a virus It also isnt adware and barely fits the categorie for bloatware as they arent paying samsung to install it instead this app is just samsung using it to offer the feature to your phone Complaining about it being bloatware is like complaining that bluetooth is bloatware

  23. Sandra-avatar



    Useless junk, that is force onto device and won't let anyone uninstall. If something is good you have choice to install or not, if not and is only useful for company that produces it, it comes preinstalled and won't let you uninstall.

    With the fact that the game itself is very short and if you wanna go further in, you HAVE to buy the other passes instead of them.becoming unlocked after the first 2 are done, i cant give you any more than 1star.

Very lacking in alot but most of all, length and creativity

    Bloatware forced onto phone. Don't care what the app's description about it says about it not being bloat. It is purely bloat if i don't want, didn't ask for, and if it uses a minimal amount of memory. If I want, then I'll load

    So I love Samsung Health and use it daily, I don't have extra stuff that this app would be used for though. But if I do then hooray. My complaint is that I was teetering on the brink of not enough space, then I attempt to back up my app data and can't and then I found this had been installed. Thanks for the awesome timing and not asking for permission, Samsung. You dingle.

    This is a driver. Not an app. If it's preinstalled on your device, it means your device's hardware supports the ANT+ communication protocol, (Similar to Bluetooth and NFC) and this driver is required for it to function. The ANT+ protocol was developed by Garmin, and is frequently to communicate with smart devices. (watches, fitness trackers, etc) This driver cannot be uninstalled for the same reasons you cannot uninstall the Wifi driver, or the NFC driver, or the Bluetooth driver. It only takes up 2.27 MB of your storage. It will not run or use system resources (RAM, battery, CPU, etc), unless a running app requires the ANT+ communication protocol. It's probably in Play Store, and not built into the operating system (like most of the other drivers are) to allow for easier updates. If it was built into the system, updating it would require a system update, which would have to be approved and pushed by the device manufacturers. It's also in the Play Store for users who don't have hardware that supports ANT+ but do have a dongle that supports it. TL;DR: It's a driver. Not an app. It's important. It's small (2.27 MB). It won't use ram or other resources unless another app needs it. Don't worry about it.

    No one likes extraneous apps using their phone's resources unnecessarily. However, I make frequent use of the Samsung Health app, and its sensors won't communicate with my phone without Ant+ services. Additionally, there are many 3rd party health related monitoring devices (heart rate monitors, weight scales, fitness monitors) that rely on Ant+ services. It's not the demon some make it out to be. If removing useless apps is your goal, start with Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat and the like.

    not so good with last device but have had many good devices previously just a glitch in the most recent last one. Very professional sevices but I knew Bixby was not good, mirror linking or clipboard or second internet too much accessiblility but all listed are highly technical, but hackers tools to be your nightmare and I was right I said it to begin with. Be careful and don't under estimate the power of Bixby. Can't trust all devices

  51. Robert-avatar



    Wow, can people read. Like other people stated this thing is LIKE a driver for a computer. You wouldn't even notice if you use it. With ANT enabled wierless devices, you wouldn't even notice that you need this app unless you didnt have It and tryed to connect a wireless device that used ANT. Get over your selfs and you bad reviews of something you dont understand. I bet it doesnt even take up much room. Edit: oh no..... it takes up 18.09 MB also has no permissions so its not being used to spy on you who ever that paranoid person is.

So why do I have to have this app on my phone? Why can't I uninstall it? WHY, even when I uninstall updates does IT THEN UPDATE IN THE BACKGROUND WITHOUT MY PERMISSION? AND, why would it update anyway? If it's meant to connect to fitness devices. WHICH I DONT HAVE. Spying on people?

    Worked perfectly. I was able to connect my ANT+ heart rate monitor to my tablet and Rouvy was able to connect! I used a cheap Micro USB (Male) to USB 2.0 (Female) Adapter and an old ANT+ usb key that came with my old Garmin Forerunner. With the software installed, no configuration was needed. I just attached the ANT key to the cable which I then plugged into the tablet and Rouvy found the heart rate monitor! Saved me a lot of money as I did not need to buy another heart rate monitor! Thanks to Google! For USB support, this software has to be installed together with ANT USB Service ANT+ ANT Radio Service ANT+ My tablet is a Lennovo running Android 9. This software is for tablets that do not have ANT+ support already builtin.

    s6 sm-920v This is the plauge of many galaxy phones. It can active your NFC indefinitely regardless of forcestop/disable. The nfc service's base APK is an android system file and cannot be removed by any apps or uninstall process other than illegal rooting and root is %99 impossible on S6 Verizon/AT&T if you're up to 4.1 and like %100 impossible if you're S6 is up to 7.0+. Having a factory default, unstoppable, unremovable app/service that maximizes any and all forms of waves is BAD!

However, I get paranoid easily especially since I opened a photo stating that people should be aware of a particular URL link because it deals with sex trafficking and THIS APP RANDOMLY STARTED DOWNLOADING... 🤦🏼‍♀️ if this is really the case then I apologize for my judgement without looking at ALL the reviews and I really do hope it's just a preinstalled app. Thank you.

    Totalitarian stuff like this is why I root my cellphone. With root access, you can fully remove any app you like. ANT was one of the ones I deleted. Search for XDA on DuckDuckGo, & search for a guide to root your phone on XDA. Then, install Titanium Backup. Titanium fully removes these pesky apps that you normally can't remove without root access. I get that the devs insist this isn't Bloatware (yes, it is) or Spyware, but no OS should block end-user removal of any app. I miss WindowsPhone..

    anyone who is saying "dont worry about it" or "so what it takes up no space" or " it doesn't have any permissions so it can't be spying on you" are probably using it to spy on you. lol if it has "no permissions then how did it get there? seems like it doesn't need any. just because you read something on or from any part of google doesn't make it some kind of scripture. wake up people. technology, as cool as it is, is far more advanced than most realize and is already ripping the world apart.

U can tell me, and i will show u logs from app usage where it has done nothing of the sort ...but interestingly, so much more. Appreciate the boost of self worthiness of this average guys meaningless existence for u to "secretly spy" on a MF tho. And good luck to all u future little Hitlers.

    Annoying Icon. Would be nice if it did what it was suppose to and enable the wireless devices already built into your phone. Re Enable My FM Radio. So we are not forced to waste data. I know my S8 has an FM radio because i can use it when rooted.

    This 🤬 app hasn't been updated since 2017!?!?!? According to Samsung it's been an allegedly "needed" app for my phone to function! Meaning I can't uninstall it.... believe me I've tried.... Nor can I stop it from updating on this 🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬 refurb phone like I did on my original one. If Ant is such OLD TECH IT'S NOT BEING UPDATED then why require Samsung users to keep this app? No I do NOT need nor want it! Bloatware gets auto uninstalled whether I find it useful or not! *beats head on wall*

    This is by far the scariest thing that's happened To me as far as internet security goes. They hacked my phone. My gmail.then My laptop which ended up basically with a destroyed hard drive. And it's so obvious I'm being hacked. I spent hours and hours and Hours trying to figure out a way to get rid of these apps. Once I read the other reviews it became clear. This is a huge violation of privacy and if you have these apps you are definitely being hacked. Not by the NSA but by some clowns.

  85. saw0o-avatar



    Been reading the reviews, yes some of them are funny. My reasons of giving it a one start review, is because it basically works hand in Hand with the knoxs system and will prevent anyone from rooting and flashing new firmware roms on their phones. Does your phone really needs it? Maybe, but if you want to root and flash it. Then skip this and disable. Or use Odin.

    Horrible bloatware. Have no use for this. Can't uninstall, keeps updating and reinstalling itself even with Automatic Updates turned OFF. I have no idea why Samsung pushes this garbage onto consumers. It should be an opt-in app not an "unable to opt-out app".

    Well, it's almost all true that you will find below what people are writing about this app... Well, my story long short.. Before this update I didn't even noticed this app working somewhere in background.. Now I use it all the time. I have deleted Skype because I use 🐜 ant's. And I am thinking about deleting viber as well and Facebook... Know why? Because now I have a fresh brand name updated ant's!!! Very high recommend. 4 star rating is applied because this program is too good, it makes me depend that why I love and hate at the same time. Cheers.

    Installed itself without my permission. Don't want it, don't need it. Wish Samsung didn't have the ability to do this. ASK us if we want something. Don't force it on us because the company is paying you to make their product manditory. I don't care if it doesn't take much space. It's the principle of it. I'll add my own apps if I need them. Don't need Samsung auto adding stuff that *some* people may like and use. This product now has 50,000 1 star reviews from people who had this forced on them. Don't want bad reviews? Don't force your product on people.

DON'T DELETE ANTS - EITHER URSELF OR ON THE "BAD ADVICE OF A MADLY DESIGNED ANTIVIRUS APP, OR SPACE SAVING APP. Most of the time they Don't need to be used, and so sit in the Background doing nothing. Using No Battery. NOT Slowing Ur Device. Just A Small Space, Deep in the Memory.

    I do not want this app, yet here it is...forcefully taking up space without the use of a 3rd party's assistance in uninstallation. How about actually putting forth some effort into marketing your product instead of buying the services of another company (i.e., Samsung, Verizon) who installs said product without the consent of their users, yeah?

    Ignorance must be bliss to the people who rated this software 1 star. In the future try actually comprehending what the purpose of this software is and how it allows your device to function properly. No it did not install itself randomly, it was preinstalled by the manufacturer. I can not believe the number of people who claim to have researched it, but still fail to properly understand what this is for and how it helps your device. It takes minimum storage space. Get a micro SD card and shut up

    ANT+ as a fitness monitoring tool helps to analyze data from the participants (e.G. heart rates, speed, general effectiveness etc.). Another useful feature is the possiblity to connect to others. This plugin analyzes patterns, identify similar ones and produces connectivity consequently.

    Just because someone does doesn't know what an app is for, they assume it's spyware and it's for government tracking? I never laughed so hard. You have literally at least 100 background apps that to different things. Example, there's an app that allows your screen to turn on and an app to use volume control. This is for the connectivity to fitness devices such as the Galaxy Watch and other things. How do you think things connect? Magic?

    My experience/s from this developer are my private data including biomettics & private images of me in my home. My experience has been full knowledge if unwanted tracking spying surveiling controlling and disabling my own paid for cellular service and internet by unlawful & totally malicious means swapping out different lisences to appear as theynhave full active permission.

    The description of this claims that it is not bloatware but I still don't use this app I don't have any use for at all, in any way, shape or form, 100%. It mention bike credent's and speed but I don't do bike workouts like Pelotons and it also mentions that it measures a person's stride while they're running via foot pods but I don't run nor do I know what a foot pod is anyways. So even though they claim it's not bloatware for me it technically is.

    The ANT+ plugins are only useful if you use fitness apps or a connected watch. I understand that many people are interested in these and it's easier to include them by default. But... they should be allowed to be removed. And some ANT plugins DO use battery quite a lot.

    I hate everyone here. "This app was installed without my permission!" It probably came from a SYSTEM UPDATE to enable you to USE HARDWARE ALREADY ON YOUR DEVICE SINCE YOU BOUGHT IT. And for God's sake, your CAMERA FILTERS take up more space than this does. "This is running in the background and freezing my phone and sending my information to the CIA!" Read. The. Description. "If you're not using this app, it will remain inactive." Please, save one-stars for apps that actually deserve it.

    This is a built-in app. It already exists on your phone when you purchase it. It won't update automatically unless you have auto update on. So stop complaining about it. It allows you to synch with ant+ enabled devices nothing more. If you don't have this then your phone won't operate properly with ant+ devices. And did I mention it's buult-in already on most phones?

    Does what it's supposed to do. I just love reading these reviews of people complaining that they never asked for this app so why is it on my phone. These are the people who delete "unnecessary" folders on their pc to gain an extra 40mb hard drive space and then blame windows when it crashes. People, you actually did ask for it when you bought a device with certain features. This software is there to operate those features.
