    I have an unlocked Note 8 and within the past few weeks I have started getting weather updates from Huafeng AccuWeather. If i try to get to where I can delete it or change it, a notice comes up saying it isn't available. I know Huafeng is connected with AccuWeather but I don't know if any app I have downloaded that would have that enbeded. Any ideas?

    Welcome to Android Central! What country do you live in? Are the updates for the correct location, or does it think you're in China (if you're actually in some other country)? It sounds like your phone might have a Chinese firmware installed.

    Ok, and the Accuweather app is giving you weather updates for the correct location?

    Yes. In Celsius not Fahrenheit.

    Try to uninstall, clear cache, then reinstall the app. Turn off sync during this. Change password. This behavior is 1 indicator of a hack.

    You are getting the app from the playstore, yes?

    After running updates, I notice a weather notification from Huafeng accuweather. Gives me a weather report from somewhere - Sky Lake?? Searched my apps, this Huafeng accuweather does not show up. How can I get rid of this? Hold down the "data provided from huafeng accuweather and get a webpage that the site is down for maintenance.

    You can try to long-press the notification, as doing that should show which app has sent the notification.

    I don't know what app is causing the accuweather to show up in the notifications part of the screen. It shows up with the temperature in celsius and shows my correct location. It started showing up two or three weeks ago and I had never loaded an app from anywhere but from Play store. Also have never been on any questionable sites on the internet.

    Did you follow the steps in post #7 and have no differences than before?

    I cleared the cache, but there is no app to uninstall. The only place it shows up is in the notifications part. Not sure where to turn off sync. Also changed password on phone.

    I have looked at all apps I have, looked at battery usage, and I don't find anything.

    Can you post a screenshot or 2 so I can visualize what you are saying? Getting a notification from an app you say you don't have? Are you rooted?

    I am not rooted. Will get screenshot when it up shows up again.

    Go to Settings, tap the dropdown menu, select Special Access. Is there a weather app there?

    I think it's definitely Huafeng Weather.

    When you get the notification again, long press it and see what comes up.

    It will tell you which app is sending said notification

    I checked all the items in Special Access and the Huafeng didn't show up. When I long press the notification the app Vault shows up, and there are two possibilities to choose--Silent Notifications or Don't silence or block.. I believe it's NQ Vault. I will uninstalling the app and reinstalling would take care of the situation. I appreciate the help.

    Deleted Vault and the notification was gone at the same time.
