    Also com.android.traceur and com.android.systemui saw these on malwarebytes. Your app / system apps

    Hi,
    If it's system app that means the phone manufacturer installed it and safe, possible could be adb shell command

    OK what about this com.android.traceur and how come on another forum on here it said com.android.shell was malware so the 2-spyware was indeed fake ?. So all these apps are perfectly safe

    They're all fine. I would recommend not digging deeper into the system, because you'll worry that every single system app that doesn't have a self-explanatory name (so essentially all of them) might be malware.
