    Hi there, it’s the same with me, I find it really annoying that this app is updating itself, I haven’t ever used the Galaxy store and every time I connect to Wi-Fi or mobile data it keeps updating. I go to settings and uninstall the 54mb of crap it has downloaded and it keeps downloading it and allowing itself permissions I keep disabling. Can you please help me get rid of this?? I mean the Galaxy store/ app whatever it is called, itself… I don’t want it. The factory version is 0kb and it keeps taking up my phone’s space without permission 😠

        She was referring to the Galaxy Store app itself, NOT apps downloaded from the store. I am looking for a way to stop samsung galaxy app from auto installing update.

    I have disabled auto upgrade on both Play store and Galaxy apps but still apps are updating on their own. I went in to Settings, Apps, Special Access, Apps that can change system settings and turned off everyone there and still I get updates.

    Unfortunately this process did not work on my Samsung Galaxy S8 plus. My apps are disabled and still Samsung continues to download applications that will in the background and update them.
