I didn't install any snap package so for, but sometimes the snapd process is using the bandwidth. Is this activity normal ? What is the snap deamon downloading ?

snap list returns :

Name  Version  Rev   Developer  Notes

core  16-2     1264  canonical  -

Periodically snapd will check to see if there are any updates to installed snaps (including the core snap you have installed).

    snapd is preinstalled in the images. As long as you aren't using any snaps (other than core), you're safe to remove it. – Kyle Feb 23 '17 at 18:01
