    Every night I always get the Amazon app update & it's been happening for a few nights now. Every night it updates & installs itself from the Amazon app store. Any ideas why it always updates every night? It's starting to get really annoying. Updating every night isn't normal behaviour, surely. Any help on this would be very much appreciated.

    S4 is on 5.0.1 lollipop.

    Have you installed Amazon Underground yet? I think Amazon is phasing out the old Amazon Appstore app in favor of Underground, which incorporates the main Amazon shopping app. Try uninstalling your Amazon Appstore app, then install Underground by going to amazon.com/amazonappstoreapp on your phone browser and following the instructions there.

    Amazon underground wants to monitor my text messages. Why? It shouldn't have to for a shopping app.

    It's possible that there's an option to send you notifications via SMS. I've been getting progressively dissatisfied with their app selection anyway, so I might ultimately ditch the app.

    Yeah that could be correct. I noticed in the Amazon app store there is a section for amazon underground with the games & apps on there.

    Haven't installed underground yet but it hasn't done itself either. Maybe coz my memory is getting real low?

    So my phone told me that Amazon underground had installed itself but I can't find it anywhere on my phone. What's all that about?

    I get updates every night. Sometimes I get them a few times in one night. I manually downloaded the app and have had it for about a month now but this started about 4 days ago. LG G2

    Luckily it hasn't happened for about 2-3 nights now so I'm hoping it sorted itself out. Probably not though.
