We’ve noticed that with every new device introduced by Samsung, the need to remove Bixby increases. A lot of people might be unfamiliar with the Samsung user’s obsession to disable the Bixby feature. One of the biggest reasons is their placement. The Bixby button is placed right below the volume button that more often leads to accidental presses.

A whole new level of frustration is knowing that the Bixby button is combined with the power button in phones like Note 10, Note 10+, Galaxy S20, and Galaxy Note 20. Sit back and take a sigh of relief as there is finally a solution to disable Bixby for good.
