Solved Temp File Creations on Android by Unused Programs

March 29, 2019 at 07:06:51
Specs: Android 5.5
On an Android device I use cleaners of Ccleaner and All-in-One Toolbox. My question is this, how come they keep finding junk/temp/etc files of programs that are not even being used. Like a game not run in months, how is it creating temp files? Is it that every program on the device will just create cache and stuff even when not being used? Is it just from update checks?
Thanks.

I reply as fast as I can, but it could be hours or months.

If they're "ad-supported" apps, it's likely that they're "calling-home" to grab more data for the ads they're getting ready to send up---even when they're not running. Same thing with both my phone and tablet. Be careful about deleting them though---some of them may be something like "high-score" settings on a game or files that the app needs to run.
