2 of my app icons have disappeared from my home screen. They are not hidden. How do I restore them to my home screen? The apps are installed but the icons have completely disappeared. I have a Galaxy A54

Hi @atriv8 

First try a soft reboot by turning the phone Off and On.

You could also look in > Settings > Home Screen > Hide Apps on Home and Apps Screen.

If I can be of any further help then please don't hesitate. Take care.  😎

I also have an A54 and I have the exact same issue. Last week, two apps I was using nearly everyday disappeared. When I search for them they're still installed and I can access them, but the icons are missing. Today I noticed that all my custom icons like Whatsapp, Mimecast etc have disappeared from my home screen.

The fact it's happening with numerous apps tell me it's not a problem with the apps, but the device or OS.

What's even more irritating is I'm finding that my sessions are not persisting in some apps as they previously did. In my Outlook for example. Previously, I would only be prompted to re login if I have changed my password, but this morning for some arbitrary reason, I was logged out. Another app had also lost my saved credentials.

I have experienced same. In my case I found the icons in some "collector" app like GamingHub and AR-Zone. The gaming hub removes all game icons from the home screen and app screen which will only available from game hub. After I change this settings (in GamingHub) the got back app icons. And similar to AR-emoji and other AR apps with AR-Zone.

That's exactly what happened to me. I never downloaded GamingHub but it was hiding all game apps. Thanks for the suggestion. After adjusting the GamingHub settings, I can see now my game apps on my Home Screen.
