    I'm experiencing an annoying problem and i'm here askying for you help. The problem is that: it happens sometimes that i install application from the google play store and after a while or some hours or a day those application uninstall by themselves. This is how it happens:i made the installation and everything goes fine but after they uninstall themselves and in the status bar the following message is displayed "the app xxx has benn removed by the phone"or something similar. The apps are not installed into the sd card and i've never been moved those app to the media folder.someone has experienced the same problem? Anyone found a solution? It's very annoying and frustrating. I'll wait for your help. Thank you

    Hi lolox82, and welcome to AF :)

    Which apps does this happen with, and are they still in the Play Store?

    If you can tell us more about your device (what model, whether you've made any modifications, whether there have been any other oddities) that may help someone spot the cause.

    I believe Google have the ability to remotely uninstall an app, e.g. if it were found to be malicious, but have never seen it happen (an app that is withdrawn from the Play Store usually remains installed). So you would have to be making some very unlucky choices for this to happen more than once!

    Just to check: do you get that notification spontaneously, or when you try to open the app? If it's when you try to open the app then that would imply that the files have been removed or corrupted but the app not properly uninstalled (because the launcher icon had not been removed). If the message just appears when you've not been using the app that sounds like an actual uninstall, which would imply either something remote doing it or some app on your device. Antivirus tools can certainly stop other apps running, but I don't know whether any can uninstall other apps without user intervention - if you have some security app installed it might be worth checking its settings.

    The device is a galaxy note 2 brand vodafone (i'm from italy).i don't have modify the device. The issue happens sometimes while i'm using the apps and sometimes if i don't. I don't think is about security sistem app because it happens even if i don't have one installed. Some of the apps are bender, instammessage, kik messenger and more. Each time it happens all disappear about the apps, the app itself such as the icon. I'm sorry for my english. I hope to be clear.

    I think it would be very useful if you were more specific about which apps you are having trouble with. Could you please provide us with the exact name of the app(s) and the name of their developer(s)?

    Do you move the apps to SD (if your phone still supports that)?

    Just trying to spot the patterns.

    If apps are vanishing from the SD, could be a duff or fake SD, there's a lot of them around.

    ...yeh trying to spot the patterns. :)

    Is this true for all apps or just specific apps? I'd it's just the same apps, I'd contact the developers first, as this can be a known issue.

    It happens with some apps not with everyonee, but too much to be due to the apps themselves.
    Apps are not stored to the sd because for this kind of phone this feature is not allowed.
    All the apps i remember wha had this behaviour are:
    Bender
    Instamessage
    Kik messenger

    The weirdest thing is that this problem start to be shown in another device and then it follows each device i change during the last two years

    Ok. How do you transfer data between devices? It has to be in something you've carried between them.

    On the plus side, we can now rule out some weird hardware fault being the cause.

    Hmmm are they all on the same google account? Sounds like someone is remotely uninstalling apps on your phones. Any ex-spouse? :p

    Does all your apps come from the play store?
