    You can tap on each entry and it may give an explanation of what it is.

    Yes, click the unknowns and see what information pops-up. Also, is this something that has recently started to occur? I don't recall ever seeing an unknown process.

    Going to be honest, I don't know what to suggest.

    Go to Settings -> Apps. Slide right to the "All" group. Scroll to the bottom part of the list looking for anything called "Unknown". If you find anything, strongly suggest you uninstall it.

    Let us know what you find.

    That sounds concerning. Are you rooted?

    No, I am not rooted, ordinary nexus 5 recently updated to 4.4.3, nova launcher. I just checked now and the unknown items disappeared... They stayed in the screen for almost 3 hours.

    Hopefully that's the end of it. Keep an eye out for more occurrences.

    Did you uninstall something?

    What does it say when you click on it?

    I have no idea from where appears that "unknown" app .I only install apps from google market ,no untrusted source.I also have Nova Launcher installed,but i don't have 2 "unknown" apps like Saverio,it was only one,but still that don't seems to be normal.
    same like in the picture of my predecessor (Saverio Geronimo) except CPU total was 1 minute and 43 seconds.

    Surprise. I just had "(Unknown)" show up in the battery usage on my Nexus 5 for the first time ever. I was monitoring battery usage a lot lately (due to Wear issues). It appeared perhaps immediately after I performed a Google Play Store update that updated the following apps:

    8sms
    firefox
    rocket player
    tivo
    wikipedia

    And of those, the only one I have launched since the update was 8sms (and they unfortunately added "ads", barf). Anyway, same symptoms as others report- there is no "Unknown" app installed. I can't get any info about "Unknown", I can't stop "Unknown" because there are no options for it, nothing shows up as "Unknown" under running apps. Phone is not rooted.

    Doesn't seem like this something that Android should allow to happen.
