    I noticed an an App called " strings tuner" was using up high megabytes of background data, even though I only use it occasionally to tubne my guitar. Could it be evesdropping?

    Yeh, it could be spyware, and/or it's ads. Suggest you post the Play Store URL for the suspicious app, might give us a better idea about it. Does the app have excessive and unnecessary permissions for what a guitar tuning app needs. Does it come from China?
