    I recently turned on the Wi-Fi download booster to download some files faster. Days later I notice it occasionally displays that it's on and providing the boost, but I'm not downloading a file. Is this a sign that my phone is compromised? I ran a couple of different antivirus programs and don't get any results.

    Welcome to the forums. Is this download booster a feature that came with your phone or an app that you downloaded? Which phone do you have?

    If you turn the booster off and the phone downloads, it's not a virus.

    Note - you must have both a wifi connection and a data connection at the same time for download booster to work. That's how it works, it downloads some parts using wifi and some using the data connection, at the same time. (Also, the server you're downloading from must support multiple download connections from the same computer - some still don't.)
