Origin Cloud Storage keeps turning itself back on

[ Edited ]

I've noticed that turning off Cloud Storage in both Origin's preferences and the game's preferences (in this case, Mass Effect Andromeda), it doesn't "stick".

 

It regularly just turns itself back on in the game's preferences. I have to check each time before I launch the game and turn it off.

 

I've noticed the same behavior with the "Show Origin after gameplay" setting. It just keeps turning itself back on.

This is an issue we are investigating. What I recommend is to either let Origin automatically update itself or just manually check that your Origin client is up to date from time to time. In this way, if or when this does get resolved, you will have to deal with the issue for the shortest possible time.

Same issue. Using a beta client. Looks like illicit datamining tactics to me especially with share system interaction date option always defaulting to ON even if you turn it OFF. Really pisses me off.

Im not using the beta client and Cloud Storage stills turns itself back on. Ive already tried clearing the cache, but that didnt work.

Yeah, that's an issue that has never been fixed. I bought a new computer a while back, brand new install, no betas, and Cloud Storage still continues to turn on by itself.

@Drakkordragon Years ago I thought this might have been a bug, but I think it's pretty clear now they've deliberately implemented this for data gathering. -__-
