About a year ago I got a Samsung Note 10 Plus, great phone, however I noticed there was something strange going on. I would unlock my phone to use it and find that randomly, apps like TikTok had been installed.
I don’t use TikTok. Never have, probably never will.
There were some other apps that would install as well, like Clash of Clans, and some other builder style games. I researched this and it took a LOT of digging to figure out what was enabling this on my phone and how to stop it. Turns out, it’s a Samsung app called Mobile Services Manager that does this. Because it took me a LOT of digging, I wanted to write this blog to help people find the solution to this problem a lot easier.
Below are instructions describing how to disable this app.
