I am currently using an Oppo Realme Q (RMX1971) which I got myself last year due to its good hardware.

Not so long ago, I was able to simply download and install apps from the Google Play Store. However, recently the phone would download the app and then display a message:

"Google Play Store" wants to install <app name>. Verify your identity before installing.

with the options "Cancel" and "Login", where "Login" sends me to the "My Realme" app and "Cancel" stops the installation. I have no desire whatsoever to create an account at "My Realme"; in fact, I would like to minimise the amount of personal data I'm providing.

Hence my question: How can I deactivate this "verification" setting? It should be possible since I was able to install quite a few apps before it got toggled.

Thank you in advance!

  • I don't think this is a "Play Store verification". The text sounds more like a general app scanner scanning all your apps before installation. As you end up on a "My Realme" login page I would assume this dialog is shown by an app installed by Realme. Check the device settings for app scanning.

  • @Robert In the "Authentication" Setting, I can choose to either verify installations from all sources, or only ones not from App Market -- the Realme version of the Play Store. I cannot see a possibility to disable authentication altogether. However this still leaves the question why I didn't need to go through this not that long ago...

  • As I wrote I don't think this authentication dialog comes from Play Store, hence you won't hind any settings regarding this in Play Store. Look in Android System Settings.
