Don’t you just hate it when you’re in the middle of something using your device and some pop-up alert just appears out of nowhere? It’s irritating, isn’t it?

There’s nothing more irritating when the same pop-up Galaxy S4 notifications appear from time to time after cancelling it earlier. In this article, we will discuss how to disable annoying prompts from Picasa and Armor, which seem to be troubling a lot of Galaxy S4 users.

Question #1—How to Disable Annoying Samsung Galaxy S4 Notifications From Picasa

“I keep on getting a notification prompting me to post pictures stored in the Gallery of my Samsung Galaxy S4 to my Picasa Web folder. Whenever this happens, I click cancel but the annoying Samsung Galaxy S4 notifications just won’t stop. Is there a way to disable this permanently?” asked one reader.

Answer:

Selecting Cancel alone when a notification appears in your device does not disable your alerts. In order for you to stop the annoying notifications from popping up every now and then, you have to configure the Sync Settings of your phone.

The Sync Settings can be accessed by entering Settings. Then, go to the Accounts tab. Select Google from the list. This will take you to the email address you registered with your phone. Next, select the email address shown there. After that, simply uncheck all the features that you don’t need. In this instance, since you find the Picasa notifications annoying, uncheck the “Sync Google+ Photos” and “Sync Picasa Web Album” options. Look for any other Picasa-related options there and disable them too.

Question #2—How to Get Rid of Armor Notifications in Samsung Galaxy S4

Another message said,“I keep on encountering an Armor Antivirus app notification every after three minutes. It appears to scan all my apps whenever it shows up and suggests a couple of apps I should install. I find it really distracting and irritating. Is there a way to completely disable it? I checked all my installed apps through System Settings>Apps>All but Armor is nowhere to be found.

Answer:

Armor is a part of an ad network triggered by apps like Yellow Pages app. Running the Lookout Ad Network scanner from Google Play will let you detect the particular app causing it. So, if you happened to have Yellow Pages installed in your phone and that you keep encountering Galaxy S4 notifications by Armor, all you have to do is uninstall the app triggering it to rid yourself of that annoyance.
