  1. Then tap the “Menu icon” in the top left of the store and navigate to “Settings”> “General”> “Automatic app updates”.
  2. To completely deactivate the automatic updates, please tap on the entry “Do not allow automatic updates”.
  3. As an alternative to the complete deactivation, you can also switch off the automatic updates for individual apps.
  4. To do this, navigate to “Apps and Games” in the menu of the Play Store, select the corresponding app and first tap on the “Three-point menu” and then on “Automatic updates off”.
