    Love link sharing. You simply choose the files or photos you have a desire to share and then you can share the folder and copy the link so you can share with your friends thus they can access the material in the folder. There are also options to invite people later to the shared folder and also you can set a time for the folder to expire where the information within said folder is no longer available.. I also am unsure but pretty sure you can place password protection onto the shared file too.

    app I hate this crazy of a app. I don't like it when I'm trying to send a picture in text. It takes to long to download when I'm receiving a picture from other users. I'm am about ready to get away from Samsung phones. Everyone is always trying to improve something thats not broken. I'm done I wish I could delete link sharing off my phone but it will not let me. You Samsung people are so smart for your own good that you are stupid.

    google drive Terrible, just terrible... this app isn't able to be removed! It causes a lot of problems with latency and lag, along with the fact that the links can't even be seen due to a protection warning! This app only slows down my uploading from image to image. This needs to be given an option of uninstalling, IMMEDIATELY!

    samsung cloud Describe your experience. Really? Are you sure you want that? I feel like I've had more "experience" than I can handle from Samsung. Anytime I see an app with that label in the playstore, I stop to see the pissed-off people's reviews. And you can count on it. I do this because I'm damn certain the developers aren't reading them so I read them to give them a little of the respect they deserve. You greedy pos's make me sick.

    website This app allowed for many horrible privacy violations hacking experienes. The panic and fear they'll get to my bank. No doubt they see this . Want it off can't delete and won't stay disabled even forced. Many more of your apps are gateways for the low life hacker. I'm ending soon my hopes of ever having control of my devices again. I have done a factory reset, but they appeared again on my tablet. I got a new cell and number and within hours hackers were in Via Google play no doubt.

    disable I've tried to use it it's a pain it is a real pain you have to go through so many Hoops and loops and ring around the Rosie and all that kind of stuff to get a link did you could use so you could drop it in on your site with the people that go there could just click on the loop in go to wherever you want them to go it sucks whoever designed this program needs to go back to school Bury after needs to be fired and I need to get probably like a 14 or 15 or 16 year old kid girl a boy or some chicks

    on android Extremely irritating!!! I would choose no star if it let me. I hate the Link Sharing notification when I added pictures on my text. When I denied the Link Sharing, the pictures go away so I can't send pictures straight on. I'm trying to disable or Uninstall the stupid Link Sharing app.

    I guess my experience has not been as bad as others. I must have not allowed it access to photos early on. So, it was never a problem. It just more garbage bloatware, at least give us the ability to remove it?!?!

    This app is great for sending large and multiple video files to friends and family. I simply connect to my wifi, upload the videos them copy the link and share. I use it on my Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ but it isn't available for me to install for my Samsung Galaxy A11 which stinks. I have to utilize Samsung quick share to send my videos recorded from the A11 to send to the Galaxy and the create a link sharing file.

    Should be able to put 0 stars. My phone has really been playing up in ways ive NEVEE seen before. My card details have been fraudulently used. I can no longer take a screen shot and I have about 3 different ways to do so. It wouldnt let me even turn the phone off to reboot it, I had to remove battery. When it was 0% charge it would go off BUT kept turning itself back on with 0 charge, but it couldnt display home screen so would turn off, only to immediately turn back on. How is this even possibl

    Doesn't seem like there is a reason for having the app. When sending pictures to my friends with apple phones, it would not let them see the image when their storage was too full. Idk why. Just sending the image without link sharing is much easier.

    This app sucks... never had to go through this much to send a picture. Had this phone for over a year 1 system update and this app shows up and take over. Why can't I delete it? Or at least disable it?

    Watch Edward Snowden and Joe Rogan on youtube talk about this exact point. It knows your heart rate it knows the other devices you've been around and thse are all running the moment they activate their carefull and geta device u can take battery out of to shut off. Other wise it's still collecting data even If the screens black. Ferity Box!- we have no choice so it's not ours.if its mine I would shut you off! Please wake up sheep Christ is coming soon!

    To REMOVE... When you go into the message and then select the images button to choose a photo, look at the bottom right of the screen. There is the little link share logo in light blue. This is a button, just press it and walla!! GONE!!

    This will make it a better bet that is a little bit easier than you could possibly get in a few days or even weeks after it doesn't have the time or time and it won't help with it but it's also the most expensive part in your home office job as you have a job you want and you can see that the best thing is not getting too bad in a job because of all your anxiety about your own business in your life you are still trying and you have a problem that has a good reason why your room needs more work o

    ZERO STARS GIVEN. More useless sh.. to take up needed space on fone. Can't uninstall it. The only use it does (for ME, not Uncle Sam) is create a ton of problems. I can easily go without "this technology" if i can't choose what is on my device. They wouldn't sell these fones n plans if the ppl were informed of all the testing, data collecting n the not-so-secret spying involved... one use, to sell u more sh.. u can't live without... like this garbage.

    5 stars only to get your attention Human/Drug traffickers use this to invade your privacy, delete photos, change settings track you and your family's. I can't delete it from my Samsung Galaxy J3. I don't use anything else, currently. Not a tech savvy person, Just know what I have experienced, in Kingfisher Oklahoma USA

    Figuring out how to send photos as SMS is annoying and isnt explained. TO SEND PICTURES VIA TXT/SMS: Go to messaging ->Select picture you want to send, and at the very bottom of your screen, you should see a blue cloud that displays as "on" in blue. Deselect it & reselect your photo, and you're set. One Cloud is apparrently behind the mechanism that forces you to "Link Share". Not sure if disabling Auto-Sync has the same effect. Device: Galaxy S10.

    I can't believe that Samsung or any phone company puts apps like this on their phone when they don't use windows and I do not want it and you can't remove it I will never buy a Samsung again.

    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.

    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.

    A really handy feature. I love it! The only reason its not 5 stars is because the recipient sometimes can't view the video and must download it first. Otherwise, they just see a circle thats spinning. Thank you, Samsung!

    Why is there no negative grade? If one chooses 1 star it means 20% but this app like many (about 400) R totally useless. If you wish to know reality create negative stars. You don´t dare.

    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

    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.

    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!

    I neither want nor need this app but am stuck with it as it can't be uninstalled. Preinstalled apps may be great for some, but for the rest of us, they merely take up space and make us angry. Most of us know at least a dozen ways to share files, folders, and links, and don't need a dedicated app to share things. If these things were uninstallable, I'd be happy. That way, we'd all win, advanced users and noobs alike.

    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!!😡

    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

    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!

    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

    My experience is that I don't like the idea behind the app and I will never use it I think it's apps like this are responsible for a large percentage of identity theft and should be illegal no apps Deborah allow you to hide your identity without a registered permit for professional use only. You are participating in criminal activity if you get this app this app supports criminal activity. I would remove it from my phone but it seems to be built in, shame on you Samsung.

    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.

    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!

    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

    0 Stars. Security patch on my Android10 doesn't want to update even though I have tried everything. The problem lie at Samsung. I have multiple bugs because of the new update and no security patch update. I have already followed all the Android processes, as well as Google's. So please don't give me advice to follow those prompts. Android adviced me to contact my manufacturer but I don't seem to get response from Samsung when I follow your 'site contact info'. Now I try it here

    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!!

    It was installed in phone from Samsung now I cannot uninstall it. Don't want my thing's gone through which is what they do and take video and voice and photos of what you do what you say where you are at even at restroom this includes Google, your phone carriers and all the partners they have in phone. They have all information on everyone who has a phone.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    This app states " updated" Dec 2017. It's incorrect, I have Updated this phone's apps every time it states that "IT NEEDS UPDATEING". INCLUDING 5 MINS AGO. It still states that it was updated "dec 2017". Way too many updating weekly. I'm not really happy about this app nor the Samsung phone any more. SAVING UP SOME CASH TO PURCHASE AN ANDROID OR BETTER PRODUCT.

    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?

    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!

    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.

    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.

    This totally prevents me from sending more than one picture at a time through message plus. I got it unknowingly in an update and I don't want it. There is not a fix for it as I was on the phone with Samsung tech for almost two hours. I'm really disgusted.

    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.

    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.

    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.

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.

    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.😀😄🌱

    I have been using Samsung Phone's for YEARS now and up until today I loved everything about them. But now while facing some serious issues i was able to see exactly who Samsung really cares about. I couldn't get a Samsung Care Pro online for HOURS of waiting and they just never cared to come help me. Their website is just TERRIBLE! It's ALWAYS FROZEN except for when it does decide to move, then it takes you all the way to the bottom of the page and will not by any means STAY where wanted/needed

    Didn't install. DID NOT AGREE TO THIS APPS 'PERMISSIONS'. Being as that is, I resent the use of the term 'permissions' being used here - ITS MEANING DOES NOT APPLY & IS COMPLETELY INAPPROPRIATE The correct, more accurate term could be any one of the following: collect, confiscate, procure, seize, hijack, or profiteer- are a few. However one cares to discribe the onslaught that we, the general public, are enduring to appease your corporate greed & unwittingly be molded into ideal consumerists

    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.....

    Convenient feature, but after upgrading to One UI the notification "Uploading files..." stays on the notification shade even after the upload is finished. Needed to force stop to rid of the notification.




    So why can't I uninstall this app? why is it on my phone at all? how does it have 4 stars? The only way is if the shady liars that came up with it, wrote a thousand + fake reviews under fake accounts. To everyone who hates this type of stuff happening switch to l.g. cuz this is my first Samsung phone and i have had nothing but issues like this,since day one. L.G. never gave me any problems in 15 years. I have had this Samsung for maybe 15 weeks and I am disgusted in it. L.G. I am comin home.
