I’m hoping someone can help me out! I keep getting a pop up when my screen is locked saying ‘bixby voice not yet set up, to use bixby voice unlock phone then press bixby key again to start setup’ but it does it by itself and appears like every 10 seconds (I wish that was an exaggeration) and is draining my battery!
Any ideas how to stop it? I tried to set it up then it changed to the bixby symbol and was listening to me every 10 seconds instead of the above message!
I feel like I’ve tried everything. It only does it when the screen is locked, apart from then, no issues.
Please help, driving me insane!!!

I was able to uninstall Bixby via the adb command on Linux with USB debugging enabled. Not sure what the equivalent process is in Windows or Mac but it should be something similar. Instructions for setting that up are easy enough to locate.
adb shell "pm list packages" | grep bixby
to list the installed bixby packages ('grep bixby' shows results containing bixby).
This brought up the following for my S9:
package:com.samsung.android.app.settings.bixby package:com.samsung.systemui.bixby2 package:com.samsung.android.bixby.service package:com.samsung.android.bixby.agent package:com.samsung.android.bixby.wakeup package:com.samsung.android.bixby.agent.dummy
Then for each result:
adb shell "pm uninstall -k --user 0 [package name]"
adb shell "pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.samsung.android.app.settings.bixby"
