Title: Identifying an App
Post by: Benz on May 18, 2018, 06:15:55 AM
So, I was looking around my phone and ended up in the data manager and noticed that at the very top of the list was an unusual (non?)app.

As you see, default Android icon, a string of numbers, restricted by default, and when I click it I get no information. Does everyone else have this or have a clue as to what it might be? It's in both the Wi-Fi and Mobile lists.

I'm kinda worried, but at the same time haven't noticed anything bizarre. I thought it be might be a disabled stock app, so I reenabled all of them and nothing changed.

I've seen something similar with battery usage when an app has been uninstalled during the reporting cycle, it gets shown as a random set of numbers like that.

Usually waiting for a full charge cycle , or rebooting (and optionally clearing cache in recovery) clears it up.

Thanks for the info! I did a reboot as soon as I posted this thread, unfortunately still there. I'll try the full charge tho. If that doesn't work, hopefully it just go away at the end of the current monthly cycle. And if that doesn't work... Well, as long as it isn't malicious, it can sit in that list forever for all I care.

As long as your rebooting, boot to recovery and clear cache. Double your odds of clearing it up.

What is your phone ? Have you install stuff outside the playstore or google image ?

Did you uninstall an app recently? Similar entries show up in the battery usage list for uninstalled apps

A couple apps, yeah. I don't see anything like it in my battery usage, but if the numbers match, then that might explain it. My only argument against it being an uninstalled app is that there is another object in the list called "Removed Apps" that seems to be a combination of all uninstalled apps. It could mean that one app somehow managed to avoid getting lumped in with all the others.

I found this:

Did you restrict background data for any of those uninstalled apps? That could be why it wasn't bundled with the rest.

Try to un-install this unknown app and see how it behave. It could be a virus or malware. You never know. Malware don't do any thing suspicious. They just sit in corner and take your information back to their creators.
