One UI: How to hide navigation gesture bar on Samsung Galaxy phone

Samsung has introduced a new function in the NavStar that provides you the ability to hide the gestures from your smartphone. In case you don’t know about it, the gesture bar is a line that appears at the bottom of the smartphone and indicates that you can navigate the devices with different gestures. For instance, you can go back to the screen by swiping up from the bottom of the screen, or you can go to recent applications just by swiping up and holding on to the screen.

However, the bottom line doesn’t provide any significance there; it just shows that the device is in gesture navigation mode, so it may give an annoying appearance and give a bad experience to the full-screen mode. If you want to get rid of it, then you can follow the below steps.

How can you hide Samsung’s gesture navigation bar?

To get rid of the gesture bar, you will need the NavStar, so first of all, download the Good Lock application, then you need to open it. Here you will find the list of different modules. You have to select the NavStar and install it, and you have to open it and turn on the toggle. On the same menu, you will see the option “Enable extra feature settings.” Now turn it on as well.

Once done, come to the home screen and open the main settings, then go to the display and click on the navigation bar, and tap on more options. Here you will find an option named “Gesture Hint.” Turn it on, and the gesture bar will be hidden.

As far as the availability of the feature is concerned, it is currently available on the Galaxy S24 series devices and is expected to be available on other devices through the One UI 6.1, so if you want to check the eligibility of your devices for the next update, you can click here.
