Hello everyone, I was looking at the battery usage levels of my cell phone, and I found these 3 apps, "help with the access package", "package installation program" and "facebook app manager" (the 3 that have the android icon), I am struck by the installation program of the package, since investigating it says that it runs with applications that are not downloaded directly from the play store, I also found that the facebook app manager downloads and installs updates from facebook outside the play store. My question is: Does that mean then that the 3 apps are related to each other? Or should I suspect something? By the way, I reset this cell phone to its factory settings 3 days ago, all the applications that I have downloaded have been from the play store and are verified by google play protect, besides, I have malwarebytes installed (running a daily analysis) and no has found nothing wrong.

Well, apparently I can't upload XD images, so I comment that the package access help has 0.11% consumption and is running, the package installation program has 0.09% consumption and is stopped, and facebook app manager has 0.06% consumption and is stopped.

I just rechecked, and both facebook app manager and package installer are running.

Edit: I didn't find the option to send another answer XD I just wanted to ask one last question: So I shouldn't worry about that? And thank you very much for your answers!

Welcome to Android Central! Which phone? Those all sound like preinstalled system apps. The package installer would be a system app used to install apps, including apk files you might download from the web (which would require Unknown Sources to be toggled on). I wouldn't be worried about this.

Hi B. Diddy, thanks for your answer, I was the one who asked the question. The phone is Huawei P10 Lite, and I do not have the option to install applications of unknown origin activated.

It doesn't matter that the Unknown Sources option isn't turned on -- the package installer is used to install apps regardless of the source.

I made you the owner of the original guest post.

wtf, this page is very strange XD I saved the changes from the thread I did and changed the interface, and now I can respond. I just have the question that I added in the thread, that if then I shouldn't worry about it. Sorry for the intensity and thanks for your answers!

You might have brought up the Q&A format of the thread, which doesn't have a reply option. I'm not really sure why they designed it that way.:-\ If you ever get that format, then just delete the very end of the URL up to the "html" part, and it should look normal again.

I think those apps are normal system apps, so nothing to worry about.
