    I had updated my Samsung Galaxy S10e phone to Android 10 and according to the info below, security updates should be managed and installed from the Google Play Store.

    Question is, for this feature to work, will I need to stay signed in to Google Play once I sign-in to Google Play?
    The only time I sign-in to the Play Store, is when I need to download and install apps and that is it and then I sign-out.


    With Google Play system updates, important Security and Privacy fixes can now be sent directly to your phone from Google Play, just the same way all your other apps update. So you get these fixes as soon as they are available.

    As far as I can tell, only some security updates come through Google Play so far: https://source.android.com/security/bulletin/2019-12-01

    Do you sign out of your Google account completely on the phone, or only in the Play Store?

    Yes, completely and even from the Settings/Accounts and I remove the Google account from there as well.

    That's an interesting question, then -- I'm not sure what happens to those updates. It probably still updates, kind of like how Google Play Services will update in the background regardless of the Google account.

    Actually, despite having that feature on my phone, it will not work because I purchased my S10e phone with Android 8 or 9 (cant remember exactly). In order for the Google Play System Updates to work, you need to purchase a device that already has Android 10 on it.
