    If you aren't experiencing any problems and don't even know what it is/does, you have no cause for concern.

    If you are still worried about it, you can disable the app but not uninstall it.
    Settings>Apps>Either "Downloaded" or "All">Currents>Disable.

    The concern with Currents is the background sync. Supposedly in 4.2 its the reason for battery drain so you go into setting and uncheck sync. If you're not using it, disabling in apps is probably better.
