    Automatic downloads of what?

    You can stop automatic updates of apps by going into the settings of the Play Store and turning it off there. You can control sync by many apps by going into their settings.

    If you are getting stuff downloaded without requesting it when we browsing I'd avoid those websites.

    Welcome to our AndroidForums, Heather :).

    Do you mean automatic application / app updates?

    If so, then, from the Play Store app, touch the 3 horizontal bars that is to the left of the words "Google Play" (i.e., in the search bar).

    From there, scroll down to Settings and select your desired update settings from the Auto-update apps row in the General section.

    You should see:

    o Do not auto-update apps
    o Auto-update apps at any time. Data Charges may apply.
    o Auto-update apps over Wi-Fi only​

    Cheers!
