I've searched extensively on this and I see many threads where the advice relates to drilling into the apps individual menu list and 'un-checking' the 'Enable auto-update' box.
Anyway, I'm at my wits end here now. For whatever reason, I do not want ANY apps to update by themselves. This functionality has been well supported in Android for a long time now and has worked. However, it no longer does and it's extremely frustrating - I'm turning to the collective brain here to see if anyone is able to help me at all?
Here are the details:
Galaxy Note9 (SM-N960F UK) Vodafone contract (UK) Android 8.1.0 Sams Exper Version 9.5
- Google playstore : Auto updates is turned OFF
- Samsung Galaxy Apps: Auto update apps, is turned OFF
- Every SINGLE app in the Play store list has been checked that the 'Enable auto-update' is NOT checked. (this is the one that everyone seems to immediately advise upon, however I have covered this off already)
And yet, at least 40-odd apps have recently auto-updated and continue to do so!
It's driving me nuts.
Is anyone else having the same experience and - is anyone able to assist at all please? Many thanks in advance.
