  1. I have tried this and it does not work for me. Even though Briefing is disabled it continues to place notifications on my home screen. Each time it does, I verify that Briefing is indeed still disabled. Very annoying to have unwanted news pushed to my phone. There must be some way to prevent this.

    This has only begun with the recent Samsung update. I am currently running Android 7.0, Kernel 3.18.14-10422490 dpi@SWDD3013 #1 Thu Feb 2 15:55:01 KST 2017
