    As a new user of Android, coming from Blackberry it seems there are an awful lot of apps running without explanation. Most can be found by google search, however can't seem to find anything about "sec.abt" Can someone help explain what this is, what it does and if it is necessary?

    Thank you.

    Thanks for the answer below. It does seem odd that nobody else has mentioned this anywhere on the web.

    Welcome to the forums. I looked for it on my Nex5 and M8 (running SlimKat) and couldn't find it. This might be an M9 thing. As for what it does or if it's necessary I am not sure.

    I don't think it's anything to worry about. I found a few references on Google, even a download link for the file. It sounds like it is something that an app may need or a certain device may need.

    From what I can tell, it's device management software used by rental agencies (that rent phones out): https://forum.xda-developers.com/and...8#post60947218
