Interesting, this usually comes up when a user sees an app listed in data usage with a name like "10xxx" (where xxx is more digits). As SpookDroid mentions, this represents a recently uninstalled app, and is simply showing the data that was used by the app before it was uninstalled. Once the data logging cycle has reset, that should go away. The 5 digit number is the UID of the app (Unique ID).

According to this, the UID range 1000-9999 is reserved for system apps, so what you're seeing could represent some system app that was uninstalled: https://android.stackexchange.com/q...ves UIDs in range,UID assigned to human users.. This is a bit odd, though, since system apps typically can't be uninstalled (unless the phone is rooted). Do you recall uninstalling any system apps?

Yes, this is exactly what it is, I've deleted unused apps recently. Thank you!

Glad it helped! Although I still wonder which system app you were able to uninstall (unless you're rooted, which makes it easier to uninstall system apps).

I don't think it was an actual system app it just had a droid icon whichi assumed to be system related

What I mean is that the UID of 5007 suggests it was a system app that was uninstalled, since UIDs in the 1000-9999 range are supposed to be reserved for system apps (per the link I previously shared). 3rd party apps are typically in the 10000 range.

This is way above my technical knowledge, I am still learning. Should it be a cause for concern BDiddy?

No, I wouldn't be concerned. I was just curious. I think there are some system apps that phone manufacturers will allow to be uninstalled, so it's probably one of them.
