Since Samsung Galaxy S4 GT-I9500 was upgraded to Android Lollipop, got that bug called GlanceViewMk. The only solution I found was to root the device and remove the GlanceViewMk with the app you like better (I used Titanium Backup pro).

You can actually manage all app permissions from the command line with root access. In Android 5.x, appops was added. It gives control over general app ...

Seems like you own a Samsung device. Go to your Settings where you can control the gesture settings and look for (I think it's called) "Quick Check" - the gesture where you wave your hand over the turned-off screen to see notifications and the clock. May be useful but I didn't use it that much.

Stock Android does not have an option to disable all vibrations. This frustrated me as well, so I made an app that can turn them off system-wide - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=sk.blade.globalvibratetoggle A rooted phone is required, as there is no API for disabling vibrations.
