    I've never noticed or seen any of those icons in my old S5. I would definitely consider doing a factory reset and see if they still appear. They look highly suspicious.

    Factory reset won't get rid of it unfortunately.

    It is messed up and I feel your pain and paranoia.
    When I physically went into Verizon and had it checked they thought I was nuts until they saw it and tried to rid it. Same with the flashlight app. At least the baby monitor app was showing. The flashlight one was well hidden and they never did find it. But my camera video recorder came on at the perfect time so they could tell it was there somewhere....flash came on too.
    That did go away with factory reset...but not the baby one. It's still on that phone that I use for the camera. Probably still being listened to by my sicko little brother!-

    I am not seeing those apps on my phone...maybe you should talk to your provider about this because that looks sketchy.

    Confirmed: did not totally buy into all that I was reading. I did find DT Ignite in Application Manager and turned it off on my non-rooted VZW S7E, using the built-in non-root method. Currently the app state reads: "Disabled." We'll see if it stays that way. I got interested in this thread when I noticed "Cookie Jam" and "News Republic" were installed covertly today. FYI: many launcher replacement apps will notify when new apps are installed, ie: my launcher drawer icon flashes with new installs (I use - and am quite fond of - Next Launcher). So that's my 2 cents' worth. Thanks for reading.
    Cheers, Scott
