    Since you can't give a link, it's impossible to say. There are a few apps named "chameleon" - a form generator, a launcher - there's a social website named chameleon. Hard to say, but I just wouldn't run it. If the phone is rooted, back it up, freeze the app and see if it still runs okay. If it does, leave the app frozen for a few months. If you still have no problems, uninstall it.

    If the phone shows any signs of misbehaving when you freeze the app, restore the phone from the backup.

    Welcome to Android Central! I moved this from the Android Apps forum to the General Help forum, since the former is intended for developers to promote their apps.

    Go to Settings>Apps and look for that app. Do you see an Uninstall button, or only a Disable button?

    It is a program with no uninstall button, just a force close and disable. Also has all my permissions. The name is Chameleon Payload Maintenance and I can't find no link or anything speaking about this program online. It doesn't detect Any viruses when I scan phone. Just thought the term "Payload" would be a virus?

    It looks like it's a Sprint/Boost thing: https://www.reddit.com/r/ting/commen...owing_network/. It doesn't appear to be malware -- just annoying bloat.
