Dears,

I have a serious problem with all the Android phones i have at home i.e. the Apps which i have installed from Google Play stores get uninstalled automatically daily at a random time.

It is happening on all Andriod phones i.e .Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra, Samsung S20 FE 5G, Samsung A13 & Honor. Basically the apps that are installed from Google Store are getting uninstalled and default apps which are coming with the phone are getting disabled.

It has been 3 months now I am facing this on daily basis and need your some urgent support on how to solve this problem.

Pls help & Thanks.

Welcome to Android Central! If they're not managed by a company, then did you install any 3rd party "phone cleaner" apps?

No parental feature enabled on these devices, but even these feature will not delete the app from the phone.
You definitely have an odd issue, usually Play store can add apps to multiple devices not delete, probably have to take it in to have someone see in person if they can spot the issue.
You don't have no antivirus, app cleaners and not work or School devices unless kids are doing something but that part you can see yourself.

Have you tried booting one of the phones into Safe Mode, then seeing if those apps still get uninstalled, and those system apps still get disabled?

I am having this exact same problem lately, games and apps being removed from my phone. I read on Tom's hardware or something, this is a new service Google is rolling out, to so call "remove apps with built-in hidden servers or services", etc. I have had popular games removed; such as Toon Blast, Helicopter escape, Royal Match, Fleet battle, a battle ship type game (which is very good), Golf Rival, Zen Word, and Flight Sim 3d. Of regular apps, Walmart was removed at least two times, and some other utility type apps. Google is making me feel I'm under State or Government control!!!

Welcome to Android Central! I'm unaware of Google having any kind of service you mentioned. They can certainly remove apps from the Play Store if they determine that they contain potentially malicious code (or otherwise violate Google's terms of service), and if that happens, then I believe those apps would also be uninstalled from your phone by Google Play Protect. Are all of these apps you mentioned installed via the Play Store, or from some other source? If they're from the Play Store, do they still show up when you search for them?

Do you have any 3rd party security apps installed? Did you already try booting into Safe Mode, as I had previously suggested?

They are personal phones, for my wife and kids. And have not installed any 3rd party cleaner on them.
Even though these are personal use phones, did you buy them brand new from an authorized retailer, or were they used or from a reseller? It almost sounds like they were prior company phones that the IT admin didn't properly remove their monitoring software.
