How to deactivate, remove Samsung Pay on your Samsung Galaxy smartphone


Most of Samsung’s smartphones – including the Galaxy A-series, Galaxy S-series and Galaxy Z-series devices – come with Samsung Pay, which enables them to make digital payments. In India, supported Samsung device owners can also pay their mobile postpaid, electricity, DTH, broadband, landline, gas and water bills with UPI on Samsung Pay. Apart from this, users can pay their credit card bills and also get personal loan option in the app. Needless to say, Samsung Pay is an incredibly useful digital payment app that comes pre-installed on Samsung Galaxy smartphones.
