Breaking News Brief app re-installing on Android phone
Having said that, some users are now reporting an issue where Breaking News Brief app is installing itself on Android phones.
According to reports, Breaking News Brief app is automatically re-installing itself through ads on other applications. Here are some reports for reference:
Only installed this to rate it one star. Every time the ad runs, it opens a separate window with a widget for instant installation, and there is no way to prevent it. It’s invasive should not be allowed in the Play Store. (Source)
The instant download from an ad in another game is awful. It’s so stressful just to escape the ad, then i have to go and uninstall it because the back button is right where the “indtant install” button is 🤦♀️ (Source)
Apparently, users who have downloaded apps like My Waifu, an AI chat app or any other app that includes advertisements are seeing Breaking News Brief ads.
And these ads have auto-install buttons that activate when users try to exit them. Consequently, the app installs itself in the background without the user’s awareness or consent.
The app is installing itself without user permission apparently because it is a Verizon bloatware app, therefore it is already ‘pre-authorised’ to be installed via the Verizon App Manager.
But fortunately, there’s a potential workaround that might help you fix this annoying glitch. disabling Verizon App Manager addresses the issue for some.
Workaround: To do this, go into Settings > Apps > Verizon App Manager > Disable.
