This morning, the news broke that Game Optimizing Service, the stock application on all Samsung phones to optimize and enhance game performance, was causing performance issues. We tried to explain the situation in detail in this post.
The fact is that many users, after reading the news, have wondered whether it’s worth having this service active, consuming resources and with the risk of causing heating problems and excessive CPU usage. Personally, I have rarely used it on my Galaxy S20+, so you can get an idea of my thoughts on the matter.
Can Game Optimizing Service be disabled?
So, for those who want to get rid of Game Optimizing Service (GOS) and have asked the question, the answer is somewhat complex. In the strict sense of the word, it is not possible to deactivate GOS per se since it is a native application of the phone. However, what we can do is limit its use thanks to Android permissions.
In this way, by removing permissions from the app, we can prevent it from running. Although it will always be there, it won’t be a headache until we want it to be. To restrict its use, simply follow these steps:
- Go to Settings and then to Apps.
- Enter the Samsung Apps Settings section and go to Game Booster.
- Uncheck all options and check if you have anything active under “Lock during the game”; if so, deactivate it.
- Now go back to the list of all apps and look for “Game Optimizing Service”.
- Once inside, uncheck all options.
This should prevent the application from running in the background, or at least from making modifications to the system. By removing permissions from Game Booster, we have also ensured that this app does not call the optimization service.
There are applications that promise to bypass Knox blocking and other mechanisms of Samsung’s stock apps, but we prefer not to give permissions to third-party services in this case.
