Hi, why is this app called Appcloud installing random apps? Are you serious, Samsung?

I can show proof that I specifically UNselected your games and pressed finish update. Then suddenly a bunch of garbage apps are being installed. How is this even legal? Why is nobody taking action?

@Members_npiXo5a   Should be able to disable. You could  check the Galaxy Store settings to try and avoid the  automatic downloading of apps.    Go to Settings - Apps - Galaxy Store - Mobile Data > Allow background data usage: toggle it off.

Now go back one step and select  Change system settings - Allow permission- Toggle it off.

Go back a step again,  Select Install unknown apps - Allow from this source- Toggle it off.

It was also discussed in this thread https://eu.community.samsung.com/t5/galaxy-a-series/how-do-i-get-rid-of-appcloud/ 

I do not work for Samsung or make Samsung Products but provide independent advice and valuable contributions.

That is the textbook response, now riddle me this..... WHY DID IT REINSTALL? Right now on the s24 ultra, I did those steps yesterday and now appcloud is back and everything like nothing happened.

Hey, I'm having the same issue. I carefully deselected all apps, clicked finish update and then some random games / apps started installing on MOBILE data! I hate BS like this. This is not serious coming from a company like Samsung. For BS like this I'm now seriously considering to sell this brick and buy a normal phone. This should NOT be legal at all! Total joke with the users. What about my parents that can't search and implement 'solutions' to those problems brought from Samsung? Total disappointment! Samsung is getting lower than xiaomi now.
