    No stars!! Unable to uninstall. CLAIMS I used it 6 days ago but the weird thing is I HAVE NO IDEA WHY I NEED IT, LET ALONE DOWNLOADED IT!! This is getting ridiculous. My settings keep changing, I have apps I did NOT download, and my phone keeps stating "devices" on all Google settings as if i own more than one phone?!? Don't attempt to call google or samsung either- he was so rude I would rather take my chances with an iphone. This is the LAST Samsung I will own!!😡

  2. Coq Suqer-avatar

    app More effin bloatware! And it can't be uninstalled! Apparently I haven't used this in over a year, so why can't I get rid of it? Like, when I get a popup saying get rid of apps you don't use so your phone works more efficiently, this would be one of those apps. And yet, I'm stuck with it clogging up my internal drive. Useless!

  3. Whit Tech-avatar

    samsung I give it a zero Stars frankly because I never installed it but it got installed says I use it uses a lot of data I'm not entirely convinced that I'm not completely hacked. It seems that I have a bunch of software that is constantly monitoring everything I do and then uploading it somewhere I'm starting to wonder whether Samsung is hacking all our phones are they about to go to war with us China?

  4. Flippa-avatar

    samsung cloud Despite auto download being inactive for this app and it having no permission....Samsung phone still allowed it to auto upgrade on my phone. Preventing me from using my phone as the download took up the whole bandwith. I don't know what this app is for.....it's a goner....

  6. Jim-avatar

    platform After this phone, I'll never by another Samsung phone again. The volume suck and S's sound like fingernails down a chalkboard. What's really annoying are all the Samsung apps that you turn off keep turning themselves back on. I don't want Bixby, I don't want to your crappy voicemail service, and I have no use for your stupid cloud, I use Google. Also what's up with everything being gray with a little darker gray font that you can barely read on the gray background?

    website Like 85% of your reviews this app is a stupid waste of space The only review that might be helpful is the one that said I could get rid of it if I'm willing to root my phone. There is no way this app is 4.2 stars with all the 1 star reviews you must be doing some new kind of math!

  11. Angela Fann-avatar

    Didn't install, no matter if you set to where there is no access. It turns itself on,uses my data my storage, can't uninstall, cant force stop.

  12. B-avatar

    If you want anyone else with this app to see and control everything you do this ones for you. POS that isn't good you cant monitor anything and this app will download others, and on top of that access to camera and mic without a warning.

  13. Hasmat Ali-avatar

    What links sharing and with who, Samsung has installed this app by force and that's why I can't delete it and Samsung has installed more apps which I don't use or need it on my device, all Samsung phones are coming with buy one and get one free, so you buy the phone and Samsung gives a free built in deval which takes full control of your phone in few months and Samsung will never help you out because they got the money already.

    I don't "share" files and have no need for this application. And despite the fact that I did not ever install this application, nor was it preinstalled on my device, this app installed itself!

  15. Jennette S.-avatar

    My phone, ( note9), has been hacked including my secure folder, Google accounts and I am still working on the rest. Apps from this location keeps asking for more and more permissions as time goes by. Then I get locked out of permisions to make changes. I cannot even delete these apps I do not want or use. Just sayin! Could be the updates. BEWARE!

  16. ciamthebigman-avatar

    I'm tired of my old lady using this and the knox plugin to control my phone. It's an misuse of personal information, data, and its very aggravating to the point I have no privacy. You guys need to fix this problem quick. Right along with android beam. And mirror link. With them aps she hates total control over my phone

  17. Cat-avatar

    These samsung apps are the worst..and google..I now have a hacked phone, meaning my entire system, my apps, my internet, everything. They install themselves, they have ridiculously intrusive permissions, and it makes my whole phone unusable. I can't uninstall them.

  18. Kenny-avatar

    Dont care of this app..dont really need it in the first place and cant get rid of it unless have root superuser app installed. Once a company does that..force install and no uninstall allowed I never use an app from that company ever...no matter how good it is. Can you say "Black Listed"

  19. Herminia Colon-avatar

    The app has trouble after you send link. It stays on, says waiting for connection 99%. Now I searched for answers cause it eats up my data. I spent an hour. I tried different ways. Finally solution Search for link sharing in settings>click on it, opens window for app> click on storage>clean data & cache, than > force stop This helps that annoying stand be searching data & battery drainer. Good luck everyone

    On link sharing between the two devices, it can be very hard but Samsung has. a separate slot for. link sharing and it can be applicable. without any delay in an easy manner.

    Becare carefull with this app I dont like it because if you dont monitored it will give information to another phone or make purchase through another phone it connects to with out your knowledge and as send cards information as well and email an all kind of other stuff you dont want people to have

    Please STOP sneaking apps into people's devices. No permission was given and no notification. These apps are useless to the average user and run in the background causing slowness and data usage. This kind of activity is getting out of hand. It also replicates other apps that may be already in use on the device. Whenever apps like this are made difficult to remove, it becomes very suspicious of its intended usage.

    Useless. Every file I have says it cant be found. Yet every other app pulls it up without a problem. I cant UNINSTALL this app unfortunately so it's simply just taking up space on my phone.

  24. Diane Zakaib-avatar

    Below 0 (wouldn't allow me to post unless a star was chosen) since this app was installed somehow and I cannot remove it.. also saw a few others having the same problem..

    Per this statement above program is doing as stated. Now please figure solution for when I'm trying to switch between different app's using the ||| button next to the home button. Most often prevents closure when trying to close any app. Typically occurs as described: 1]I open text app 2]Click retailers link which opens Chrome switching me to retailers app [if on device]. 3]After pressing ||| again device MAY FINALLY show all apps open. 4]Select app to close yet nothing occurs for 4-6 min later.

    I don't understand why developers want to make it where you can't delete an Ap? If it's so great then you won't need to force it on someone! Most of the time it is useless and it usually slows down the phone and drains the battery! Oh yeah and let's not forget violation of your privacy!!

  29. Mary Power-avatar

    This app was put on my phone WITHOUT my consent. I don't need it, I don't want it and i CANNOT remove it. It is not the only app that Samsung has forcibly installed on my phone and which then proceeds to interfere with my personally downloaded apps. As the problem appears to be Samsung's own disregard for customer privacy, this is my last Samsung phone. Mary, BA (Ord.) Law How do i delete this app?

    Most of the time, i would say 80%, it cannot upload the file i am trying to share. I shared 2.5Mb fileabout 11 hours ago. The link is supppsed to expire today, but has been stuck on 32%. The message when i check on it os always, "Paused. Waiting for connection." During these times i am on the Internet. I can browse sites. Read the news and post this rating. It would be a cool app if it actually work more than 20% of the time.

  32. Babz Espy-avatar

  35. Brandy Bonner-avatar

    It's just a way for your data to stolen upon interception. That's why it's forced & can't be controlled in any way. This is what I believe because I've been suffering with so many issues dealing with this kind of stuff for years including phones being rooted & I didn't do it. the lists go on & on. Be careful with Google too. You could have a fake user interface on your phone stealing your information & data, yet never know it unless you research it because Google will never send warnings. Shady

  36. scott miller-avatar

    I dont send large files or any files. Besides my friends dont use windows. So I have no use for it. Just turn off auto update so when the app grows over time it stays the same size. This is my method.

  37. Paul Taber-avatar

    Can't uninstall it. Not sure what it does It crashes shortly after starting it up .. so I can understand why im having a problen

    Zero zero zero. What a horrible app. Went to look a privacy policy and it's in I think Chinese??? Ohmmmm you put it in here as not an optional item then make it almost impossible to stop it, then to make matter's worse I can't even write to the privacy dept about it because I can't convert the language to English. Frustrated.

  39. Pandora Boxen-avatar

    worst app . what is with the time limits for sharing. i cant keep these clips and i can only view them one day i can't even save the clips for later viewing. this is ridiculous and a waste of download space. Developer, you need to go back to the drawing board on this one. At least provide the option to save before you re no longest able to access the videos. provide prompts or something. Not Happy with this

    can't open, know what it's for, didn't install, can't uninstall or stop, yeah it's one of many that I didn't ask for, have everything turned off and still it just keeps on going, thanks for allowing link sharing to link someone else to my phone. oh by the way, I'm moving to an iPhone.

    Ok thanks to a negative review I found the problem I had with pop up ads in EVERY app I open was caused by this app. Once I uninstalled all updates and Force Stop it, they no longer pop up. This is a stupid app. So if you like pop up ads, go ahead and continue updating it and don't Force Stop this app. Doesn't even deserve 1 star. 0 stars from me!

  44. C Keogan-avatar

    Useful for sharing large files quickly without compressing. Saves me going through steps to upload to Google drive or Dropbox, copy & then send link, especially when my cloud drives tend to be maxed out, forcing me to make room. Without Samsung's easy link sharing I would not bother. Don't know why other users are fixated on this as bloatware; it's useful and unobtrusive, just one more option on the share file list. My only quibble is that sometimes the links show as expired by the receiver, even though they are still valid from my view. Haven't tracked down what the problem might be on that.

  45. Al Sam-avatar

    A horrendous app that will eat your entire data in a few minutes. Sent a 200 mb video it used up 5gb data in a few minutes it's done this a few times. Do not use this app. There's no way to complain and your files seem not to be private as it can be viewed by there customer service if you can ever get through to them with no way to refund you a penny. Avoid like the plague.

  46. kevin hartless-avatar

    What I hate about this app is that it's very slow when you hit " share option" it takes forever just to open. I have a galaxy s7 and it's very slow. I don't want this app because it's like all of Samsung applications are slow.. you will get a 1 star from me for now

  47. Grace Poole-avatar

    Every time I try to click on a share option, all the icons move so 9/10 times this app is way more annoying than helpful. I think if it had the option to show/hide or somehow sort, not just randomly move all the messaging apps around however it feels like it would be a much better app. Pls I can't unsintall!

  48. AC Melka-avatar

    i thought this app was perfect and it must be because its not needed any update in years. thank god Samsung is so invested in making sure security for users on older phones is as good as it was years ago. the religious way Samsung freezes updates on depeicated stuff so we get to use bloat ware 100% as good as 3-4 years ago. 100% the same. show offy apple take that. good hackers cant read about unpatched vulnerabilities online or....wait.....

  50. Maxime Provost-avatar

    Honnestly impressed by the ease of use of the app. No need to send my files to google drive or onedrive or email just to share. Hit share , by contact sms or create a link and send throught another app. Easy, effeortless, fast ... Send and forget which is what should be default for every phones. Awesome.

    i got to year 5 almost at the end and it.s says no more challenges check again later... that was 3 days ago... i really doubt that i finished the game and you did not make more challenges, at least so we can finish year 5... also it crushes randomly, and sometimes does not save the progress and makes me loose challenges i actualy won.

    Do you know how many problems this is caused in my relationship due to the fact that I'm constantly accusing my husband of downloading Spy Apps whether he is or he is not there's way too many apps that are installed on my phone that can't be disabled or uninstalled due to Samsung I do believe it's time for a class action lawsuit myself if you or anybody that's read this post there's quite a few of you that I've read that agree. Samsung it's time for you to do with the consumer wants!!!!!

    The device does not have sufficient onboard storage capacity to have the app working with ur device especially after the updates. Too many additional apps cannot be moved to the external storage as most other devices are able to. Permanently struggling with very low on board memory after just a few of the standard updates for the onboard apps. And many of the devices own apps cannot be disabled completely or uninstalled if not used.

  55. Tyler Andrr-avatar

    This is an app that was installed on my phone without my knowledge and it is used to spy on you. Perhaps people who work with the police have the need to regularly use these tactics. This goes beyond simple relationship jealousy/control purposes.

    Thank you to the many users who have shared the BS this app has created. Giving me a heads up on all the BS we all have had to deal with, and all created by some dumb s__t.

I guess getting what you pay for is a thing of the past... A Samsung Galaxy user

  57. Mahesh Naik-avatar

    This is Samsung's forced installed app, did not request for this app and there is no shortcut to use. Even if you search for the name it does not appear in the list of installed applications. You cannot uninstall completely or disable. Something fishi about this APP, Google should blacklist this app which they will not do.

  58. Kyle Kiani-avatar

    Link Sharing no longer allows generating codes or code downloads. There is no loss in file size upon transfers. The Link Sharing companion app on Windows works much better. There is code support as well. I use Your Phone on Windows to seamlessly transfer files. Please bring back code support Samsung. Thank you.

  59. Nan Messer-avatar

    I don't like file sharing ! I wish this app didn't come installed on my phone. I don't like it at all. I never share files, I feel like it's dangerous. But if I disable it, will it hurt other things on my phone ? I don't need this and all the space it takes up on my phone.

    0 STARS! Forcefully installed on MY phone without MY permission & can't be uninstalled, uses data & storage, closes apps while in use, drops internet & wifi, slows phone down, changes settings, deletes files, drains battery.

I contacted my attorney & started taking screenshots as well as videos with another device for evidence to pursue legal action. MY phone, MY consent!

    Gobble, Gobble, DATA EATER, THIS APP IS SOME SORT OF TROJAN HORSE! I went in SETTINGS TO GET RID OF THIS APP & I FREAKED CUZ THE OBLONG BOXES THAT HAVE THE WORDS "DATA" OR "CACHE", THOSE BOXES WERE SQUARE. IN ALL THE YEARS I HAD A CELL PHONE, THESE BOXES WERE ALWAYS OBLONG, NOT SQUARE SO IT STOOD OUT. I SERIOUSLY ADVISE ANYONE THAT HAS THIS APP (scam), TO REMOVE THIS. IT APPEARS TO ME THAT SOMEONE IS TRYING TO GET TO THE CONTACTS LIST. DISCLAIMER: I COULD BE WRONG, I DOUBT IT.

    While so prominently displayed atop the share sheet, I had completely missed this function. I really think it is very well done and an absolute live saver when you need to send larger files. It is so easy to use. Everybody should give it a try.

  68. Michael Cooper-avatar

    Here's another Bloat App that for most of us will never use . Something that makes me angry is these kind of Apps run in "Stealth Mode" without permission from us weather we want them to or not . Question really is why are you sharing my information to your Partners without my Knowledge or permission ?

  69. Poppa York-avatar

    Not happy with this version. The old app (Flir Secure) was more user friendly on my Samsung. Now, if the video loads. It's way slower. Sometimes it times put before the video loads. Definitely not happy.

    WELL, I was about to join the chorus of one STAR reviewers.. HOWEVER, After reading your reviews where some were full of praise and others ( like me ) were not so happy.... SO...After thinking about it, I went to Play Store and uninstalled the update. IT IMMEDIATELY REVERTED TO a form of SIMPLE SHARE which we liked..😄😃😀 " DON'T update if this is what you wanted " Might I suggest the developers offer a separate (all encompassing ) pro version. Thanks team.😀😄🌱

  72. Bob T-avatar

    This app was installed on my new Samsung S10E. Listing here states last update was quite some time ago. Actually app was just updated 09/08/2019. I like this app very much. Operates just fine and is robust. Integrated with other apps very well. Again congrats to the developers efforts on this excellent utulity!!!!!

    downloaded by other apps. user never opened it not easy to remove. very capable/powerful app. causing links to neighbors devices/etc. needs better authentication.
