Hi all,


I was just looking through my Samsungs downloaded files and saw on the 27th October, a file (not an app) called SmartThings from url: was there.


Is this something I should be worried about?

Hi @Geordiedave. This is the Samsung SmartThings app. This is being rolled out (or is already available) to all Samsung users.

Hi Carl,


Sorry to be a pain, but I have anxiety issues so can you just clarify something for me. 


is a legit download source?


Only asking because i have never noticed a file in my download folder from samsung before. It normally just contains pdf's i've downloaded.


Many thanks

Hi @Geordiedave


Do you have the SmartThings app in your app folder? If so, could you send us a screenshot?
