    I have very few apps that I want notifications from. When I download new apps, I always deselect show notifications in the settings. There are several apps that change this setting without my permission. I have even changed my phone to not allow automatic updates. Please help me stop these apps from overriding my settings.

    Mainly Facebook but there are others. When I download new apps, I go to settings/applications/application manager and deselect show notifications. I also have changed my settings to not automatically run updates. However at least weekly I will get notifications from apps that I had turned off show notifications for. Once I get them I go back through settings and will deselect again the show notifications box. It is a nuisance more than anything.

    Sometimes there are settings within the apps that control notifications, Facebook has them. It would be poor form to not comply with the setting that you changed but it's somewhere else to look.

    Thank you. I just turned off notifications in FB app settings. Hopefully that will remedy the nuisance. As other apps change their settings I will check settings within the apps. Some of the games I play do it and some shopping apps like Kohls. I actually deleted kohl's because it was constantly sending notifications. Thanks for your help.

    yeah, I have one app that keeps NOTHING when an update comes out, you have to re-sign in and reset all your preferences. They got a cold review from me...
