Help Mobile hostpot name defaults and password randomises by itself


Jan 23, 2023
I have a samsung galaxy fold 4.

If I change the hostpot name and password to what I want it to be, it'll work fine for a couple of days.
Then 1-3 days later it'll automatically default to "Galaxy Z Fold 4 xxxx" (Upper case and number combination of 4 characters)as name, and a random weak password.

I have tried going through my list of apps with access to system configurations, and have disabled all except google services and system apps. Issue persists.

Change seems to happen randomly. It'll work fine for a while, then I'll go to use it and it'll be back to a default with a new password.
