Random Apps Installing

Does anyone know why every maybe, once a month random apps are installing themselves onto my S20? They aren't usually weird mysterious bad apps, legit apps like Candy Crush, Realtor.com, even Family Guy but I already have that game but I know it reinstalls because it ends up at the end of my app pages instead of somewhere in the beginning of my app pages since Ive had it forever. Ive ran cleaners and virus apps but nothing pops up so I am now thinking this is some Samsung thing being I get a notification for suggestions on apps that I cant clear from my notifications. So what setting is it that will rid me of having to remove anywhere from 4 to 7 apps I didn't approve to be put on my phone. Halp!

Samsung doesn't install any unknown apps. Primarly, these will be due to 3rd party apps you installed or the carrier
