Two Issues with Galaxy Phone & Tablet

Issue 1: When I open Google Chrome an annoying "favorite apps" screen appears on top. I have Suggestions turned off but it won't stop suggesting. This happens on both my Tab A and my Galaxy A50 phone. Is this a Google or Samsung issue? Have any of you experienced this?

Issue 2: Is there any way to disable the system notifications that show up in the status bar? I don't need to be informed that a given app, most often IMDB and Camera,  knows my location. I've tried everything to no avail. They just won't stop. Any ideas?
