What is the Unified Daemon app?

Last modified : May 09. 2018

The Unified Daemon application provides support for a number of different apps on your device. These include the Weather, Yahoo Finance and Yahoo News apps amongst others. The data is used by apps such as the Alarm, S Planner (calendar) app and the camera.


Data usage will be different according to settings of each user. For example, data usage depends on how many cities are set in the Weather app, and how you setup the Stock or Categories for Yahoo Finance and News. If you want to reduce data usage by those apps, set a more suitable refresh period depending on your needs.  


In setting each of the application, the refresh period can be set for either:
    ● None
    ● 1 hour

    ● 3 hours
    ● 6 hours
    ● 12 hours


To use this app (on selected models only), go to: Setting > Data usage > Unified Daemon


You can enable and disable this service by following the path below: 


Go to: Settings > Data usage > scroll down and tap on Unified Daemon > scroll down and tap to enable Restrict Background Data.

Please Note: When you go into Settings > Data usage menu on your device, you may see a service called Unified Daemon (EUR). Data usage measured from Unified Daemon may vary according to the refresh rate of certain apps (such as Weather and Yahoo Finance).
