Why does Messaging app opens every time I unlock & start using my Phone?


AC Question

Every time when I start using my phone, I press power button, unlock the phone by swiping upwards, the pattern lock appears. I draw the unlock pattern, & unlock my phone.

The moment the first screen comes on the display, many a times (& irritatingly so), the messaging app that I didn't even open is now open and ready to use. I have to close the messaging app, & then proceed with what I wanted to do on the phone in the first place.

What is the problem here, & how can I solve it?
