at&t secure family app

The at&t secure family app has been installing/updating for over a week now, I have an unlocked AT&T phone that I use on Straight Talk. I personally do not want the app as I will never use it, how long will I have to put up with it installing/updating?

Re: at&t secure family app

I have never used AT&T Secure Family service, or the AT&T Family Map, the reason for my writing was that the AT&T Secure Family service has been installing and updating on my Samsung Galaxy S6 Active (unlocked AT&T phone that I use with Straight Talk) for a month now. How much longer can I expect this to continue or is there a way I can halt it?
