    All of a sudden macrodroid is enabled on my phone. Never installed it (or don't remember) and had to look up what it is.

    It seems useful, but I am just wondering how it got installed and how it became enabled. I see it had a July 15 update and that is about when I noticed it.

    Weird.

    Is that an app or a feature? I don't see that on my Pixel 2 XL, and nothing comes up if I search the Settings for macrodroid.

    It is an app, kind of like an easier to use Tasker I think.

    Can you uninstall it, or only Disable it?

    I just disabled it. It was just strange it popped up as running and enabled. Maybe I downloaded it long ago and never used it and forgot about it, and the recent app update activated it. In google play "my apps" it is listed as installed, unfortunately there is not initial install dates for programs I installed.

    What puzzles me is that this shouldn't be an app you can Disable, since that implies it was preinstalled when you got the phone (and a Pixel shouldn't have this kind of preinstalled bloat). Another possibility is that it's been granted Device Administrator privileges -- go to Settings>Apps>Advanced>Special App Access>Device Admin Apps​, and see if Macrodroid is there. If so, uncheck it, then see if you can uninstall it.

    First I've heard of it. Looks like a useful app.

    I just searched on mine and it wasn't there, either.
