    Default Hidden Application

    I would like to know why when opening a samsung screen it is automatically prepared to take a photo. The screen has a little phone sign on it. Is it possible the phone has a hidden application which hides messages and calls? How can i discover ghis application. Also sometimes the camera screen has a four digit code which dissappears immediately. Any help will be appreciated!
    Thank u

    If your worried about an app that someone may have put on your phone.

    Then factory reset or odin flash a rom and/or cwm recovery.

    That is much easier and sure to geteid of the app. Than the crwling through the root directoey and hunting down apps that dont appier in your app menu and such. Ect ect.

    If it is a worry about an installed app from another party. Then sure their are other ways.
    And well, let me say this, I can modify a rom and build cwm installs. And I would not do the other ways.

    Security is the key.
