    I have a ****ty old lg smartphone from walmart. I need a new one anyway but something called instat apps suddenly downloaded onto the phone while i was responding to messages on messenger. No warning whatsoever i clicked it, it brought me to the play store however nothing popped up just "timed out". I tried to stop the download but was unsuccessful. I cannot find it anywhere on the phone any evidence of whatever just downloaded. I have suspected viruses being present on here before but have never seen something like that which i could not find. Is this the "instant apps" that google just rolled out or is it some kind of malware? Who can i go to in order to check the phone for viruses or whatever?
