    An application by the name "wqbd" is getting installed automatically again and again even if it is uninstalled on my android mobile. Tried Factory reset but then again it is installed on the next day. Is it harful,if so how to remove it? Under application detail it says "installed from wqbd" and not from playstore.

    I didn't see anything in play store with wqbd, is that the correct spelling?

    Which device you have ?

    An app wqbd version 3 is getting installed automatically again and again even after uninstalling it several times.
    It's not from playstore, it's showing it is installed from wqbd itself.
    Mine having Panasonic P99 phone.
    Please advise.

    Since it seems like this might specific to Panasonic, try contacting their support line: http://www.panasonic.com/global/corp...e/gateway.html

    Interesting. I'm still not finding any reference to "wqbd" in Google, but it sounds like it's limited to Panasonic phones. I would still try contacting Panasonic support, using the link I shared above.

    Since it has no permissions granted, I wonder if that app is really what's causing the WhatsApp spamming.

    This makes me wonder if it's a Panasonic app similar to what Verizon use to have, where it is a system app designed to install bloatware after the phone is activated. In Verizon's case, you could disable that app to prevent it from installing bloat. Judging by the screenshot's showing in this thread, I don't think that'll be possible without some third party disabler and/or rooting. If you can't disable it, I would start bugging Panasonic customer service to remove the app on their end. One or two people won't be enough, though. Even if they do plan to remove it, they will have to release an OS update to do so, which means it'll take time to get that rolled out.

    Otherwise, your only option may be to either live with it or buy a different brand phone.

    Perhaps some other app, the true culprit, is installing or activating the wbqd app. Are there any suspects?

    Either that, or something preinstalled by a carrier rather than Panasonic, or perhaps something regional?

    Edit. I see that I have misquoted the app's name. Since, judging by the degree of feedback to this thread, I doubt that anyone in the universe will notice, I'll leave it just as it is.
