Recently my Galaxy S7 started to show last track's name when the phone is locked. Even if the music player is turned off. How do I turn it off?

Edit Looks like track information comes from any app: music player, Spotify, YouTube, chrome. Whichever app plays music/video last - it leaves a name on my lock screen.

  • Did you try clearing the music app data in the settings? – esQmo_ Nov 20 '16 at 11:42
  • I have no idea how to do it – Dima Nov 20 '16 at 11:55
  • Settings > Applications > Applications Manager then find the music app, touch it then select Storage > Clear data – esQmo_ Nov 20 '16 at 12:02
  • I have updated the question - probably it is system setting, not a setting of a single app – Dima Nov 20 '16 at 12:05
  • What about the launcher? Is this the default launcher? – user145490 Nov 21 '16 at 4:40

Settings > Notifications > Don't Show

Blocks VLC, FBReader TTS, etc for Android 6, so probably similar on a Samsung ROM.
