O2 my provider appears to have hijacked Samsung Internet default page to go to O2. 

My phone is NOT locked to them, i recently moved to O2 , installed their app and find that there is no setting to remove or change the default homepage.

Note: I know i can use custom setting but default is always shown as O2.

 Despite uninstalling O2 app and Samsung Internet I cannot find out where this is set. It must be done in the system. Annoying!

When reinstalling Samsung internet the default is back to O2. Can you tell me how they have done this and how to change it? I'm on Android 12 with note 10 plus

I did say this phone is not a network phone, it therefore has no provider stuff . It came from Samsung and is unlocked

It's most likely something the O2 app did, the problem is it may take a factory reset to get rid off it

I dont get an "interface ", it just sets a homepage default to go to o2 site.
Non consentual hijack.
It may be unique to o2 who use this hack, I donr know
