The THM (thumbnail) and LRV (low resolution video) files are created by the GoPro automatically so when using the app you have a thumbnail and a low resolution video file for playback via the app.  They are essential to the proper functioning of your camera.  So no, you cannot turn this function off.

What I do is not use  a smartphone and no files are created. use the smartphone they are created.
