I would have absolutely no reason to lie about this.
I hate the "smart phone" and used a flip phone for ages, until my job forced it on me because they needed me to have access to documents when in the
field, and they needed me to have the ability to send copies of documents back to the office from the field.
I was at my Brother's house in South Florida last night, when he asked me if my phone had recently updated. I was sure it hadn't because I do not have
my phone set for automatic updates. He told me to go to Google settings and see if COVID-19 notifications had been downloaded to my phone.
I didn't even know how to do that, until he told me how. I just went to settings. Listed there in settings was the Google option. When I tapped on
Google, listed there was "COVID-19 Notifications". It had a brief description and a highlighted "Learn more", in blue.
When I tapped "Learn more", it gave information about the function, which included instructions for how to turn off notifications and how to
uninstall, but I was unable to use either of those options.
Maybe I am using the wrong word. Maybe it is not an app, maybe it is a function, but it was there, and I don't have the time nor the desire to play
My knowledge of cell phones is extremely limited, that is why I thought I may be able to receive some help and understanding from ATS . I see I made a
I thank everyone that legitimately tried to help me. I tried the app removers suggested and the notification is no longer visible. I don't know it is
actually still there or if it will return. I will be more vigilant, even if I can't do anything about it, I will be aware.
