    Default How to stop automatic file download from Web?

    Hi guys,

    Is there a way to keep my S4 from downloading files automatically?

    I'm in am online business course, and every time I visit their site or refresh their page on my phone, it downloads ALL the PDF worksheets over and over again. It didn't matter if I access it via Chrome or Internet, or if I'm on data or wifi.

    I have 7 or 8 copies of the same files that it keeps redownloading, then I have to delete them manually. It's wasting my data, space, and time, and it's annoying as hell.

    Any advice? Please and thank you!

    I would report it to the webmaster. See what they have to say.

    Maybe check your browser settings and see if you have a setting for automatic downloading of files checked. Mine always asks me if I want to download PDF files, so not sure why you're getting them automatically.

    This is just the web? It sounds like a Dropbox shared folder.
