    Apparently my phone has been hacked or something is weird with my calendar apps. Russian text appeared after the last update in my Digital calendar app. It also appears in my Chronus calendar app. I'm about ready to do a complete wipe which is a PITA since I'll be upgrading in a month to the Note 10. Any ideas on this? Apparently it's spam for a money scam.

    It's probably from an app you installed. Restart in Safe Mode and see if it still happens. If it does, check on Google Calendar and see if your calendar has been permanently changed. If it has, you'll have to both uninstall the offending app and clean up the calendar.

    • Press and hold the Power button (right edge of the phone) until the 'Power off' prompt appears on the screen then release.
    • Touch and hold Power off until the 'Safe mode' prompt appears then release.
    • To confirm, tap Safe mode.
    To get out of safe mode, just restart normally.

    Also, you could check which apps have the Calendar permission enabled.
