My Android smartphone downloads apps automatically without any interaction. Generally, the apps are known but some are unknown apps. I can only assume this is a virus/malware.
So I decided to format the phone and installed antivirus/malware app(s). Sadly a few minutes later the unknown apps installed themselves and I cannot delete them even with the anti malware apps.
So in desperation, I reformatted my phone again and low and behold the app reinstalled itself without me asking it too.
Anti Virus Apps I've Tried:
- Quick Heal
Every time I scan my phone at least 6-8 malicious apps are found installed on it! I'm at a complete loss of what to do!
Why do the applications keep installing?
Can/How do I get rid of them?
Is it time for me to seek professional help/replace the phone/anything I can do on my own?
