Some quick toggles automatically disappearing from the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge
Many who own the Galaxy S6 or the Galaxy S6 edge have taken to social media to voice their displeasure over the disappearance of some quick toggles from their devices. Multiple reports suggest that a large number of Galaxy S6 and S6 edge owners are missing either one or all of the toggles that trigger mobile data, hotspot and private mode. No one really knows why this is happening, the handsets shipped with these toggles and seeing as how they correspond to some very important functions it wouldn’t make any sense for Samsung to remove them altogether.
There’s no official fix for this just yet though reports claim that Samsung has acknowledged this issue through customer support, some of the company’s regional Twitter accounts have acknowledged it as well. At least one regional account offered a temporary solution which involves backing up important data and performing a factory reset on the device. While it brings back the toggles, it doesn’t reduce the possibility that those toggles simply won’t disappear again, and it will prove to be a nuisance for users if they have to perform a factory reset every single time that this happens.
Some XDA forum members believe that this is happening due to a software feature that’s gone rogue, so to speak, that it’s automatically removing toggles that users haven’t used in over 30 days. That doesn’t seem to be true though since many of the people lamenting the loss of these toggles are the people who heavily rely on them during daily use. Samsung is yet to provide a fix for this issue, or an explanation for that matter, we’ll keep our eyes and ears open for more information.

There is a fix to get them back, just install these APK’s. As always this is at your own risk and we are not responsible for any damage on your phone or anything like that whatsoever. It has been tested by us and it is working. For how long we do not know but until Samsung addresses this issue you can use this fix.
