    I have a 2017 Huawei Y5
    Model # MYA-L23
    Android Version 6.0

    I used the voice recorder once to record something on the radio and ever since that the phone keeps randomly recording on it's own.

    For example, every time I notice the phone recording, I'll delete the recording. This morning I woke up to see over 10 recordings on the phone. Conversations I had with my wife, a phone call and even recordings of me snoring last night.

    How do I get this thing to stop?!?!

    Welcome to Android Central! Also see if you can Disable it in the Settings>Apps​ menu.

    I tried the force stop but that did not work. Eventually I went into Settings>Apps>Recorder>Permissions and turned off the microphone permission and this worked.

    Thanks for your help though. Really appreciated it.
