    When I looked at my phone this morning my notifications bar was loaded with install successfull messages. All Google play apps but I did not install them. How do I find out which app is doing this?

    Welcome to Android Central! They're probably existing apps that updated automatically. Do you have your Play Store set to update apps automatically?

    I was thinking something a little more creepy - the OP's account was compromised and the person that did it went into the Play Store and started triggering random app installs to the device (which CAN be done from the web interface for those not aware).

    Excellent point, but in this case, the OP mentioned these are all Google Play apps. It would also help to know which Galaxy device, and how old it is. Modern devices running an up-to-date version of Google Play Store no longer give notifications of updated apps -- the only exceptions being updates for Chrome and possibly Android System Webview.

    Ah, I was thinking along the lines of apps installed from Google Play (rather than from somewhere else), not literally apps with the "Google Play.." name.

    You could still be right -- depends on the interpretation. Hopefully the OP will register and clarify!
