Note: JavaScript is essential for all modern websites. Hence, some websites might not work correctly without JavaScript.

The sites or pages that weren’t working due to disabled JavaScript will start functioning more smoothly after enabling the ‘Allow JavaScript’ option. Sometimes, you might need to clear your browser’s cache after enabling JavaScript.

Bottom Line

We can’t deny that JavaScript is a popular programming language that creates a user-friendly browser element. But, it brings some ads and unwanted pop-up windows and poses security risks.

Disabling JavaScript is beneficial if you’re counted among those who prefer privacy and security over a user-friendly browsing experience.

At any time, if you realize the need to enable JavaScript in Samsung Internet, you can quickly enable the Allow JavaScript toggle, as mentioned.
