    Welcome to Android Central! Are any of these apps installed? https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...obile&hl=en_US

    I moved this from the Android Apps forum to the E4 Plus forum, since the former is intended for developers to promote their apps.

    For what it's worth, I recently noticed this as well on my Lenovo Tab 4 8". It was easily uninstalled, indicating that it's not a preinstalled system app. "Metrics" usually means it has to do with ad analytics, so it might have come with some app that showed ads.

    I checked this app out as I also found it recently on my phone uninvited. It is definitely for tracking ads and usage of other installed, mainly optional apps on your device. In my opinion it is also spyware but since Google supports it they have other terms for that now that don't sound so alarming. Uninstalling it won't make anything go wrong with your phone. At best the app it came with with send notifications or pop-ups saying it "needs permissions" or something of the like. I would use that to identify which app to replace. (My suggestion).
