    I've just seen a weird notification on my lockscreen. I'm not sure what it is but it was a purple icon with system hi written next to it. It appeared as soon as I turned my lockscreen on then dissapeared instantly and I've never seen it before.

    Well some weird things have been happening lately. ......Friends receiving picture message links I didn't send from my number ...... I've received texts where the date was 1st Jan 1970....... Also when I run a stage fright detector I show up with 2 vulnerabilities. Or maybe these just haven't been patched by htc?

    Wow..idk..I have no clue at this point.. Try rebooting your device..and monitor it from there..

    If you think you have spyware..the awesome thing about Android is an fdr will remove it..even the stuff that supposedly stays hidden

    Factory reset. Get to it in settings or from the boot menu.

    This will wipe ALL data from your phone.
