Status bar won't go away while watching videos on fullscreen on LG Tribute Dynasty from boost Mobile

Status bar won't go away while watching videos on fullscreen on LG Tribute Dynasty from boost Mobile. I have had the device for 34 days now, and spent at least 60 hours on the phone with customer service between boost and lg. I have as near as make no difference no network signal, can hardly ever stream it's so weak, although I live in a City, where there should be according to boost a perfect 4G signal. I can't turn off the safesearch filter in Google, (it turns right back on the second I leave settings after I have saved them), which causes it to be on in every browser I've downloaded. It's all so frustrating. I'd greatly appreciate any help anyone could give me, in the simplest terms possible, as I am not the most efficient man to maneuver his way around electronics.

    You can hide the status bar and android software controls using the below method

    public void HideSoftwareButtons(bool hide) {
                if (hide)
                {
                    int uiOptions = (int)(Forms.Context as Activity).Window.DecorView.SystemUiVisibility;
                    uiOptions |= (int)SystemUiFlags.Fullscreen;
                    uiOptions |= (int)SystemUiFlags.HideNavigation;
                    uiOptions |= (int)SystemUiFlags.ImmersiveSticky;
                    (Forms.Context as Activity).Window.DecorView.SystemUiVisibility = (StatusBarVisibility)uiOptions;
                }
                else {
                    (Forms.Context as Activity).Window.DecorView.SystemUiVisibility = StatusBarVisibility.Visible;
                }
            }
