Chrome & Youtube keep reinstalling

2019-12-18, 10:11 AM

I've disabled and uninstalled Chrome and YouTube as I don't use these apps but every night around 4am they keep reinstalling.

 

Any reasons why as this has only started to happen since I received a new phone under warranty.

I have a Moto G6 XT1925-5 on Android version 9 (Current Version PPS29.55-37-7).

 

I've tried resetting the phone back to default and not disabling any apps apart from those YouTube and Chrome apps.

 

It still keeps re-installing them.

 

Any ideas as this doesn't happen on a phone I have on Android Version 8 and is very annoying.

Bit of a strange one.

 

You can go to the Playstore>My Apps and Games>Settings and change the Auto-update to NEVER. You will still get notified from time-to-time about updates but can choose what to install.

 

Also you can restrict the background data of most apps Via Phone settings>Apps> pick an app> Data Usage.

 

 

HTH :)

Thanks Porphyrius

 

I have the Auto update set to Never but have just tried disabling the data usage under both apps.

I'll report back tomorrow and thanks again for your help.

Hello Porphyrius

 

It still re-installs Youtube and Chrome.

 

I have added the app details below.

 

Settings/Apps/See All Apps/Chrome

Disabled

Notifications: Off

Permissions: No Permissions Granted

Storage: 8.54mb

Data Usage: No Data Used & Background Data Disabled.

Advanced:

Install unknown apps: Not Allowed

 

Version 74.0.3729.136

 

Settings/Apps/See All Apps/Youtube

Disabled

Notifications: Off

Permissions: No Permissions Granted

Storage: 24.90mb

Data Usage: No Data Used & Background Data Disabled.

Advanced:

Install unknown apps: Not Allowed

 

Version 14.18.56

 

After I unistall, Android System Web View requires an update. Could it be to do with that?

It could be the Web view. I've no real use for that so if possible disable it. Also I won't use Chrome Browser,too many bugs/faults IMHO.

 

I disable it and use Opera Browsers. They come with a free VPN for more security,

Hello Porphyrius

 

I'm unable to disable Android System Web View but have forced stop the app and removed the notifications.

I use Firefox as a browser and read far too bad reports about Chrome.

 

Will leave this for 24 hours and report back.

 

Thanks for your help.

Go back into your Playstore settings and App Download Preference and change to Ask Me everytime. At least then you can say NO if they try to update with luck.

Hello Porphyrius

 

Still, Chrome and YouTube get re-installed. The only time it doesn't re-install is if there's no internet connection.

Android System Web View is also back.

Any clues why this is happening?

I've tried a software reset and still the same issues.

 

Is there anyway I can roll back to Android V8?

Unfortunately AFAIK Lenovo do not have an easy way to revert to a previous O/S which I have mentioned to a forum/Lenovo representative and find unusual that they are the only Supplier I know who don't have an easy Roll-Back system  :(

 

This is really strange to me :/

 

There is another option that may work. If you go settings>Apps and 3 dots and Show-System apps and scroll down the the Updater app and disable it if possible.

 

You will need to remember you have done this if and when you want to check for updates and see if that stops it?

 

Remember that even though some apps say they need updating if they are working well the Update might not even be needed per user.
