    I realized that the best way for malware to hide is under a name that sounds legit. There are two apps which I am investigating on my phone that I haven't seen discussed anywhere, and I was hoping you could help me check whether they should really be where they are:

    1) Under Settings -Apps - Configure Apps - Can Modify System Settings
    is an App called "Mobile Services" (represented by a Purple Icon with an Arrow point down). Note it isn't labeled "Google" Mobile Services. Using a "Force Stop" on the App doesn't seem to affect the Phone's functionality.

    2) Under Settings - Personal - Google - Connected Apps is an Icon called "Android Device" (green android robot icon) which I havent seen discussed anywhere as a default icon under Connected Apps. The icon is blurry, as if in low-resolution compared to the crisp-icons found everywhere else.

    Help is much appreciated.

    PS: Am on Android 6.01

    I'm not sure about your 2nd app, but the 1st app, Mobile Services might be the former DT Ignite, which still does the same thing. It allows your carrier to pre-install bloatware apps. If so, you may want to disable it.
