Re: Saving issues

Hi @Annoyed3, welcome to our forum!

As @alexdon wrote/posted a link about, there should be a setting in each application that allows you to turn off that an application should automatically save pictures that you receive on the device, as this is not the default behaviour for all applications.

In most applications, that settings can either be found by clicking the 3 dots in the top right corner, or the 3 lines in the top left corner, depending on if the applications follow the material design or not.

Let us know if you found the settings to remove this! Slightly smiling Face
