This obnoxious lump of spyware has "wipe all data" available In  its menu , it doesn't work and its massivly intrusive data collection remains intact.

Anybody know how to wipe it?

I'm going to root my phone just to get rid of it, I won't ever buy another Shamsung product it its installed on it.

Kill it using either adb or using one of the package disabler apps, root not required for any of these methods

You can also deny access to usage data via its own menu

Time to root the phone and delete it.
