My volume keeps turning itself down

The last few months I've been noticing an issue where if I have my phone speakers on max volume it'll turn itself down a few notches completely on its own. I keep checking settings and I don't have a volume limit enabled and I can't find anything else that would cause this issue. This never used to be a problem. I don't know if this is Samsung's unwarranted way of trying to "protect" my hearing or not. If it is, I'll have to stop purchasing Samsung phones. It's already bad enough that they don't allow you to set the screen timeout to never, and even worse when they override a 3rd party app that will let you keep your screen on for as long as you want.

Please tell me if there's a solution to any of this or if I should stop buying Samsung phones.

Try clearing your system cache and restarting your device. If that doesn't work try putting your device into safe mode. If that fails it could be a problem with your volume button sticking

I had this problem with my S9. The cause was from water, I would always use that phone in water, but It started off only doing it every now and then, but gradually got worse. Basically to the point where it acted as if the button was constantly being held down. If the phone died, it'd boot up into 'safe mode' and it'd take more than a few times to get it to boot normal. I took the actual volume button out of the phone, which kinda helped, because once I got it to stop making it turn my volume down and everything, the slightest touch on the button would start it again.
If you want to make sure your volume stays up tho, I think I used Bixby Routines or Routines+ from Good Lock on the galaxy store, and (if I can remember right, set it to where if the volume was below at a certain level, it would raise it back up. But I believe it is something that needs to be repaired, I tried everything, even clearing the system cache, and doing a factory reset.
