    I have a oneplus 7 pro and bought it around 2 years ago, since almost 1 and half years my phone's wallpaper which I am particularly about and even got a few wallpaper apps but the phone is changing the wallpaper I choose without asking, like Google images randomly, few space images and few nasa images of strangers and even I didn't get a few notification about changing the wallpaper. I deleted all the wallpaper apps and even now it keeps happening like almost once a week.
    The frequency is not particular and totally random
    Any suggestions to get rid of this problem, just annoying in general

    Hi, maybe you have given some app permission to do this.
    Try resetting the app preferences:
    Settings > Apps & notifications > See All __ Apps > tap 3 dots > Reset app preferences.
    Though you will have to fix app permissions afterwards.
    The other option would be a factory reset.
    Backup your data (except the apps) to the cloud or a pc first.
