Your S10's notification panel can quickly fill up with alerts about incoming messages, emails, weather reports … the list goes on and on.
When you think about it, there is no point behind app icon badges on Android, since you can just view any alert in the notification panel. Not only are these badges pretty redundant, but to many people, they're just a straight up eyesore. Thankfully, Samsung gives you a very straightforward approach to disabling tiny nuisances.
Changing & Removing App Icon Badges
To get rid of the app badges on your S10, open Settings and hit "Notifications." From there, tap on the toggle next to "App Icon Badges" to disable the feature.
Alternatively, if you do not mind the badges but would like to see the words "App icon badges" instead of the toggle, then select " Show without number "on the following page. Once done, app icon badges will no longer be moving forward, and instead, simply show up as tiny red dots.
