Might have a malware
So I think my phone might be infected with a malware. I was bored and using the browser to just search for random things, and I think I might have accidentally clicked on something when my phone was lagging out. I didn't notice anything until later when I saw a notification that I just completed installing something. I don't remember what it said it just downloaded, because stupid me have already hit the clear button. I just know that I didn't download anything today. Which now have me concern because something was installed, but I can't find it anywhere. It's not on my phone's memory or microsd card. I even downloaded multiple antivirus app, and scan my phone for malware but nothing was found. Maybe I'm just being paranoid and there is nothing wrong, but then again my phone downloaded something without my permission and I don't know what it is. I feel like I am going crazy here. Any suggestion is greatly appreciated.
Never mind, I found the app. So glad it was only downloaded and not installed like I thought it did, or I hope it didn't. I can finally not feel so stress out anymore.

Re: Might have a malware
Everything seems to be the same as usual. There is nothing different going on with my phone at the moment. I'm just going to go with that the problem is fix. I shouldn't stress myself out, wondering if my phone may have a malware that is secretly tracking me. But this incident did convince me that it is time for me to upgrade my phone from a crappy android 2.2 to the latest version.

Re: Might have a malware
Well I'm with T-mobile and I prefer to just buy at full price instead of doing that down payment thing, but if it comes to it, I might just have to go with it. Plus there seem to never be a good time to buy a new phone. There seem to be a new phone coming out every month with better specs and such.
Yeah that is true, I should of done that right after I deleted the app. Cause for a while my phone would turn on or shut off by itself, at first I thought my phone was haunted, but then I realized it might have been the app. So after factory resetting it, everything seem to be fine. I'm just gonna hope that doing that resolve the problem.
