    There is malware out there that can do that. Point the phone away from you when sleeping.

    Install Avast Mobile and scan your phone.
    While that's scanning, go into settings, apps, and look for any apps that look strange or that you don't remember installing. If you find any, Google them, then delete them if you find sketchy info about them.
    To be extra safe, I would go ahead and reset the phone. Then, on another device, I would log into my Google account and change my password.

    Welcome to the forums. What phone do you have? Do you have any security app or stock feature enabled in your phone? Some of these apps take 'mugshots' when someone enters the wrong password in your phone or vault. Maybe something similar happened accidentally.
