Fix: Samsung Smart Manager notification issues

You don’t get to be a leader in any field without innovations. Samsung is well and truly leading the smartphone industry in many categories, though, occasionally, some pre-installed features can be more of a problem than a solution.

That goes for the built-in system manager that comes as a default solution for security and maintenance. Now, Smart Manager is truly ”smart”, at least, most of the time. However, users reported various issues, and most of them orbit around over irritating notifications.

Namely, they are supposed to inform users if a rogue application is overeager to delete phone resources. And that’s a good thing. On the other hand, if that is repeating constantly, and even though you took necessary steps or the phone is behaving well, then it’s reasonable to expect it to stop. But it won’t.

For that purpose, we prepared multiple workarounds you should take into consideration. If you’re tired of repetitive notifications about a resource-hogging app, follow the steps below.

How to resolve frequent notifications on Samsung’s Smart Manager

Clear app’s cache and data

In order to address this problem, let’s check the app first. It’s not unusual for 3rd-party apps, especially the ones that work in the background, to hog on your system resources. Facebook Messenger is well-known for that. Now, primarily, they might behave as intended, but throughout the extended use, with piles of data stored, the consumption levels may arise. So, what you’ll need to do is to clear cache and data from a troubled app and look for changes. Hopefully, after that, Smart Manager won’t bother you anymore.

  1. Tap Settings.
  2. Open Apps or Application Manager.
  3. Navigate to a resource-hogging app.
  4. Tap the app and open Storage.
  5. Clear cache and data.
  6. Restart your device.

Repeat the procedure for all troubled apps that are related to annoying, all-day-popping notifications.

Update the troubled app

In addition, after certain system updates or changes inflicted over time, certain apps might have a discourse with the present system version. The unoptimized app isn’t the good app, or whatever the saying. Joke aside, it’s vital to have installed up-to-date apps. If you skip on the updates, there’s a chance that you’re missing a fix or improvements of stability improvements.

  1. Tap the Play Store app.
  2. Open a 3-stripe menu from the left.
  3. Tap My Apps & Games.
  4. Select Check for updates.
  5. If there are some updates available, make sure to install them.

This isn’t a certain solution since some developers choose to neglect app while others prefer cosmetic improvements over stability and overall usefulness.

Reinstall the troubled app

Starting from a scratch is always a viable workaround when something unexpectedly goes wrong. Most of the apps you’ll meet are eventually going to suffer and reinstallation is an obvious choice. It goes the same for both Play Store and APK apps. If you’re uncertain how to do it, follow the instructions below and, in a few easy steps, you should be relieved of the “This app is causing your device to run slowly” prompts.

  1. Tap and hold the alleged resource-vampire app and move it to the top of the screen to uninstall it.
  2. Restart your device swiftly.
  3. Enable Wi-Fi.
  4. Tap Play Store.
  5. Search for the app or find it within your Library.
  6. Install the app and check for changes.

Clear Smart Manager’s cache

Even though Smart Manager is quite a handy built-in tool, some users might disagree and call it bloatware solely because of the fact that you can’t erase it. At least, if your device isn’t rooted. Then you can do basically everything. What you can do is reset to factory settings, so to say. That can be done by the simple clearing of cache and data.

  1. Tap Settings.
  2. Open Apps or Application Manager.
  3. Navigate to a Smart Manager.
  4. Tap the app and open Storage.
  5. Clear cache and data.
  6. Restart your device.

Use an alternative app

If your Smart Manager isn’t running wild and a certain app indeed negatively impacts your phone’s performance, you should take a replacement into consideration. Every major app you might be using has a valid lighter version or an alternative. For example, if you’re unsatisfied how the official Facebook app impacts your system, it’s obvious choice to switch to something else, like Tinfoil or Friendly.

Maybe the latest flagships won’t be affected, but the lack of optimization can lead to overconsumption and similar issues on the older handsets. So, look up for a replacement and you should have much better time with the performance while relieving yourself of those pesky notifications.

Restore factory settings

Finally, if nothing seems to work in your favor and the phone’s ludicrous and erratic behavior is over the point of no return, the factory reset should be an obvious choice. Back in the days, without the proper cloud support, this whole procedure would be an overwhelmingly bothersome. But, nowadays, you can backup and restore your data in no more than 30 minutes. Including the resetting procedure. Don’t forget to backup your data on the cloud or your PC with the Samsung’s Smart Switch PC Suite.

  1. Open Settings.
  2. Tap Backup & Restore.
  3. Choose Factory Data Reset.
  4. Tap Reset Device.
  5. Tap Erase Everything.
  6. Confirm selection and insert your passcode or PIN.

That should do it. Samsung isn’t one of those OEM’s that offer cleanest stock Android in the market, which doesn’t entirely means that the preinstalled apps are not useful. However, if you have had issues with Smart Manager, we certainly hope that this was a helpful read.
